February 16

Hey everyone!
Today started out with our homework which is

  • Wikified Research Paper (due Tuesday)
  • *A note card that has on it a secret no one knows about you 
  • CSAP packet
Next we took the grammar test which is something I know we all look forward to!We also turned in our CSAP packets and grammar worksheets from this week. Finally, today was our first day starting poetry! Smith had us familiarize ourselves with some poetry words by playing pictionary- I have to admit it was pretty competitive! Here are some of the words we had to get our teams to guess-
  • Alliteration
  • Allusion
  • Assonance
  • Ballad
  • Consonance 
  • Couplet
  • and so on...
Overall, it was a pretty good way to end the week:) I hope you all have a great four day weekend! 

*Try to type up your secret or have someone else write it for you. When we get back on Tuesday, the substitute will gather everyone's note cards, mix them up, and then redistribute them. The goal is to take the note card the substitute gives you and write a poem about whatever secret is on that note card.
