G6: Poetry Introduction!

Grade 6 handed in their essays on Holes, thereby completing the unit, and we have now moved on to Poetry!

We began yesterday by discussing the differences between prose and poetry (ask your student, he/she should be able to tell you the difference!) and today we had fun with similes.  Most of the unit will be spent creating a poetry anthology that focuses on the senses and at the end each student will have a beautiful book of poems to keep!  Here is an overview of the unit that was distributed to students today: Poetry Overview

This unit will keep us going until about Christmas break.  In addition, students are working on their “Indie Novels”, or independent reading. The assignment and deadline can be found here: Bookmark

Also, a reminder to students that they have a “grammar quiz” on Monday, so remember to review your grammar packets this weekend!
