I hope everyone was able to enjoy the warm weather over the weekend. This week we are continuing our poetry unit and M-Step testing. Because students will be missing class due to testing, I would like to remind everyone to check our poetry website at http://gmsela7poetry.weebly.com/ for notes and missing work. Students have two RDWs this week, due on Friday.
On a side note, this will be my last week of student teaching at GMS, and I just wanted to thank all of you for the continuous communication and support during my time here. It has truly been a wonderful experience working with Mrs. Falconer and getting to know your kids.
This week’s RDWs:
RDW #1 – Write three compound sentences, three complex sentences starting with dependent clauses, three complex starting with independent clauses, and three compound-complex sentences. (Box FANBOYS, circle dependent marker words, and highlight commas)
RDW #2 – You may write about any or all of the following questions: What is your favorite poem (this could be one we read together or a favorite poem you read on your own). What do you like about poetry? What is your favorite poem that you have written so far? What have you learned about poetry so far in this unit? Highlight three complex-compound sentences.
Friday, May 8 – RDWs due
