We completed pink information sheet today in class!

Dear Juniors,

If you missed class, we completed the following:

We began class with a journal entry regarding Pirates of The Carribean.  I asked students to locate as many figurative language examples as possible from the clip.
1. We discussed the elements of sound associated with poetry. These include:
Please obtain the information about the above elements prior to returning to class. You may visit with a friend in class or locate the information from the Internet.

These elements were illustrated through the use of storybooks. Once we completed your pink sheet, we worked in groups and located a minimum of five figurative language examples. This activity was recorded as "participation points;" therefore, if you missed class, you will need to stop by during Flex and complete the activity on your own.

1. Remember that your "Figurative Language Find" is due on THURSDAY. This assignment was given to you on Friday of last week. Review the previous post if you need review.
2. Your book needs to be completed on or by MARCH 11th! You also need to have seen the corresponding film. I would complete your Reading Log, as you progress through your book.
