Monday, May 5

It’s possible that your teacher took grades on the D.O.L. today. Please ask her if she did. If so, you need to get a D.O.L. make-up sheet from your teacher.

If you were gone today, you need to copy your assignments in your agenda. If you are at home right now, use this schedule, right here on clipboards, like you would the “Agenda Guide” in the classroom, and simply copy each day’s activities into your agenda.

There will be no more spelling/vocabulary tests for the remainder of the school year.

Students created their allusion poems today. An allusion poem offers hints/clues about someone or something famous without ever saying his/her/its name. Do you need help with your poems? Take a look at the “Assignments” page in the top menu of this this page. You’ll find some helpful tips there.

Students created their final poems today. The 9th and 10th poems for the poetry notebook are up to the student. Did you enjoy writing a rhyming poem? Do another one of those. Did you like the alliterative poem better? Make one of those. It’s a “your choice” poem from here on out. Do you need help with your poems?

A few kids were given their poetry notebooks today. When we’re all finished, these Bare Books will contain a table of contents, ten completed poems, and color illustrations on every page. Remember to create your table of contents last but save the first page for that. The titles in the table of contents need to be correctly capitalized, and the page numbers need to match/correspond with the poems correctly.

Do you think you’re ready for your Bare Book? If so, show your teacher that you have written ten poems, and each of these poems has been well edited. Tell her you’re ready for your Bare Book. Every student needs to have his/her poetry notebook finished by Friday, May 16 (including the table of contents and the color illustrations).
