Today began an exciting new unit on poetry! This is the year when we begin to learn how to analyse poetry, and when we learn to think in a new, creative, subtle way. I can’t wait for it! It’s like a treasure hunt– we read a poem and then together, we dig out all the gold. If you want to know what’s going on for this unit, check out the unit overview: Poetry Overview.
If you enjoyed today’s poem as much as I did, Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou, here is the clip we watched of her reading the poem:
This is also a reminder that your indie reading and interview questions are due on Monday, don’t forget! Parents, I look forward to seeing you at conferences on Friday.
