February 25 – March 1

This is our last week before the end of the quarter.  Although it is exciting to know Spring Break is just around the corner, it is important to take care of business and turn in assignments next week.  For literature groups, students need to finish their current book and write a Bio Poem about one of the characters from the book.  The AM group should finish Wonder, and the PM group should finish Brown Girl Dreaming.

We had only two new poems this week.  On Monday students wrote,  “I Wonder,” poems and on Tuesday, they wrote Opposite Poems.  The students turned in their poetry notebooks today for a formative grade.  On Tuesday, the students will turn in the final copy of their seven best poems for a summative grade.  The rubric for how this book is being graded is on Google Classroom.

Each quarter the students work on a piece of personal writing of their choice.  This should be handed in by Friday, March 8.

Hopefully, everyone will work hard this week and get everything handed in, and then can enjoy a relaxing or fun-filled Spring break!  Maybe the weather will cooperate, too!  Wouldn’t that be great?!!
