Poetry Month!
This month is dedicated to poetry! There are many forms of poetry we will be discovering and practicing over the entirety of the month.

It is important to expose your student to different genres!

April 23rd is William Shakespeare’s birthday. He was born in in 1564. We will have a short celebration during the afternoon.

Please keep in mind we are going to work diligently on our poems for The Poetry Slam! I have the expectation of your student memorizing their poems for The Slam.

We will be tying in our theme of continents into everyday lessons in Social Studies, Science, Reading, and Writing.

Happy National Poetry Month!

Contact me with any questions or concerns: through email, sending a note, or Class Dojo. I will get back to you as soon as possible!
