Grade 6 has been writing excellent poetry that focuses on our five senses! It has been a pleasure for me to read it as they work.
All students should have the final drafts of their poems ready by now; this week we are putting all the poems together into a nice anthology. The final anthology is due on Monday, December 16, and I look forward to having students share their poems with the class on that day! In case the assignment sheet got lost, here it is: Imagery Poetry Anthology
Additionally, don’t forget that you should have finished reading your book for the Independent Novel assignment. Most students have finished the book and some have even already completed the bookmark that goes along with it. The deadline is extended to this Friday, December 13.
The students have been working hard and behaving well, so if they keep it up, they’ll get a party as a reward next week! I hope we get to have a party!
