AG In The Know Q1
October 2021; 1st Quarter
Welcome AG Parents!
Happy to be sharing a new newsletter tool, Smore! This will allow me to send regular updates, share pictures, and give a head's up for important information. This is my first time using it. What do you think? It's both easy to use and useful to have!
Mrs. Jones is at Gillespie Park Mondays and Tuesdays
Bessemer Elementary 5th Grade AR Group 10:05-10:35 Wednesday-Friday
5th Grade AR Curriculum
We are on the Poetry Unit and are finishing our Bio Poems to share with the group and will be identifying figurative language within songs/music.
We will then explore the Harlem Renaissance and learn about its' impact on the work of poet Langston Hughes. We will analyze some of the poetry of Hughes and discuss tone, figurative language used in his poetry, and compare and contrast reading the poem independently and listening to it read aloud.
Soon, we will compare the tone, themes and figurative language found in two different poems.
What We're Up To!
5th graders helped add to my bulletin board. The board serves as a reminder of all that we are and can do on days we may forget! Sometimes we all need to reflect on the amazing things we are capable of.
