Students had a chance to share their favorite foods this morning as we discussed writing sensory poetry. Lots of watering mouths and hungry stomachs by the end of our brainstorming. Tonight as students work on creating a sensory poem they need to remember to include words that describe a variety of their senses as well as words that create strong images. Using a thesaurus is a very helpful tool.
1) LA - compete draft one of sensory poem. It must include two different poetic devices as well as include at least three senses within the poem.
2) Socials - complete the worksheet. Quiz on world geography and mapping reading skills will be given next Wednesday.
3) Art - Roy Lichenstein's Onomatopoeia art is due this Friday
Keep bringing in those pennies. Division One has now filled 7 bags. That is truly amazing.
