We will continue our poetry unit this week.
Monday: Write free verse and repetition and rhyme
Tuesday: Write small poems and simile and metaphor
Wednesday: Assign poetry book.  This is due May 20 at the end of class.
Thursday: Work on poetry book
Friday: I will be gone today and Monday due to my son's high school graduation.  Please remind your child to be respectful to the sub. 
           Work on poetry book.

Students need to continue writing in their home writer's notebook.  As a reminder, this is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 20 minutes each time, which should consist of a page. They may also type their entries, but the typed pages must be 12 point font, and cut neatly and glued or taped into the notebook.  The due date is this Friday, May 13.  They should have 15 more entries for a total of 60 entries.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily. All missing assignments for the poetry unit are due May 20.
