1) LA - Found Poem - complete cutting out words from magazines (or sources of your choice) to create a poem that has one theme and conveys meaning through form and word choice. My suggestion: write the poem on paper to see it clearly, play with spacing of words, arrangement of words, and words still needed or words not needed. DO NOT GLUE WORDS DOWN! Be ready for peer feedback on Monday.
Just as a reminder:
What is a Found Poem? It is a poem created from pre-existing words taken from sources that were not intended for poetry (words from newspapers, magazines, journals, etc) and rearranged to create a poem; essentially a word collage

Comment: In class on Thursday we had a chance to practise inferencing skills. Pointing out that we use this skill every day when we observe the world around us (such as how students could inferred that I had an important meeting after school based on how I was dressed) helped students understand this skill and how it can be applied to what we read. In class you all practised writing statements to show your understanding. Create two new examples using two indication sentences and inference conclusion as per the following examples.
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
