Writer’s Workshop Corner
In this third marking period I will be working with the students to improve their test taking strategies. We will be concentrating on close reading of poetry and understanding theme, tone, mood and the use of figurative language. This should be a fun unit for students because poetry always taps into feelings and imagery, two areas students love to explore.
Also, I encourage you to look at our school newspaper which can be found on the Rotella website. Some of our third and fourth grade students have been covering events around the school and writing articles based on their findings. There are poems and articles that will both inform and amuse you.
