This week, the Grade 6 class will be writing poetry. That's right, all week long. I have tasked the kids with writing at least seven poems on various subjects and in various styles. We spent last week learning about how to approach poetry and a method for writing it using the resources like the magic formula below.
The poetry assignment is posted below. More information about writing poetry and different poetry styles can be found on the Shadow Poetry website. Students' poems will be posted around school, at Open House, and at Graduation.
