2020 Vision

Vision- Is a thought, concept, or object formed by the imagination.

20/20- Not to burst your bubble, but 20/20 vision does not mean having “perfect vision.”

When the optometrist says that you have “20/20 vision” he is referring to your visual perception, which is the clarity or sharpness of your vision...Basically, how well can you see?

What are your goals for 2020?

What is your vision for 2020?

Make a list of your goals and stick to them.

Be a positive influence on others!


Your Future is Bright, Keep A 20/20 Vision!

April is National Poetry Month!

We will begin writing Cinquains this month.

A cinquain is a five-line poem that was invented by Adelaide Crapsey. She was an American poet who took her inspiration from Japanese haiku and tanka.


Cinquains


  • The first line is one word.
  • The second line contains two adjectives.
  • The third line has three words ending in "ing."
  • The fourth line has four or more words that make a complete sentence.
  • The fifth line is one word.

Watermelon

Juicy, sweet

Dripping, slurping, smacking

So messy to eat

Yummy
