Classwork and Homework

Hi there,
-What a gorgeous day... Remember to prepare for Day of Caring Thursday with water bottles, sunscreen and a hat.

-Today in class we talked "What is Poetry?" We created a list of ideas. We watched a video:
Glory by Common:


-We talked about the structure, the word choice, mood, tone, figurative language and theme of this poem. Then you opened Google Classroom Day 1 poetry. I paired you up into groups of two or threes. You and your group decided to read two particular poems and annotate them thinking about structure, word choice, mood, tone, figurative lang., and theme.

-If you were absent today, please read all the poems to get a good idea about what each is about. You then choose two to annotate on your own.

HOMEWORK:
1. Read and record your title, minutes and pages.

2. Be sure your Reading Goal sheet and Poetry Pre-assessment sheet are turned in. Many did not do this.

3. Annotate two poems from Google Classroom.

4. Be sure you have earbuds or headphones with you at all times.

Have a great evening,
Mrs. Downs
