Reading and Writing
We are also using the next few weeks to learn about poetry. This week students have started to learn the language that goes along with reading, analyzing, and creating poems. Some of the terms we are discussing in class are: rhyme, sensory language, imagery, stanza, personification, metaphor, simile, onomatopoeia, hyperbole, and alliteration.
Students will read a variety of types of poems and learn how to answer questions based on their knowledge and understanding of poems. They will create their own poetry books, with a variety of poems, that they will write and illustrate.
