January 29, 2015 Hooray for Poetry Out Loud!

Welcome back!!!  I’m so excited to be starting our Poetry Out Loud unit this week!  Today, we started class by talking about poetry…what it is, why it’s awesome and inspiring, and how we are going to challenge ourselves to better understand poetry and become poets ourselves.

Today we:

  • read and analyzed the poem “I, Too” by Langston Hughes.  Awesome job!
  • chose two poems to focus on memorizing with great vigor and excitement!
  • briefly read and analyzed 1 of the two poems selected
  • watched a POL video giving us memorization tips

See you all tomorrow!

Ms. Slaiger
