We have started a new unit!  Poetry!

  • Every morning, we write a journal.  So since this is a poetry unit, we are writing poetry journals.

  • Before started anything, we evaluated a poem by a famous writer.   I read "Sick," by Shel Silverstein.

  • The first thing we studied in poetry was imagery.  We began by a describing exercise.  Then we wrote a poem.

  • Next, metaphors.

  • Before Christmas Break, we wrote odes about some part of winter.   Mine is a Snow Ode.

  • Also, we wrote parodys to famous Christmas songs.  Tiffany and I worked together to write Mr. Claus.  It goes to the tune of the Grinch one.  (you know, "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch...")

  • At the end of this poetry unit, we studied 3 types of poetry using the Discovering Poetry site.
