We are still working on our poetry unit. Students receive notes on each type of poem. We go over the notes and look at examples. We then create rough drafts, edit, check for spelling, and THEN create a final copy.
Here are this week's assignments:
Monday: "The Dawn's Awake" Google Classroom; Name Poem notes in journal
Tuesday: Name Poem final draft; "The Dawn's Awake" due
Wednesday: Acrostic notes in journal; Acrostic final draft
Thursday: Concrete Poetry notes in journal; Concrete poem final draft
Friday: Poetry work day; Library
Reminder: Book Talks due Tuesday, November 18, 2014
