Gone Tomorrow? Friday’s Tasks

Hi All,

If you’re out tomorrow for one of our few field trips, good luck to you! Here is what you’ll be missing:

1. We’re going to finish our poetry notes, answering the question: WHY do poets write poetry?
Intro to Poetry

2. We’re going to explore the really good poetry selections found in our textbook (yes, we have a textbook). 🙂 Here’s a link to the online textbook: Language Arts, Literature Bookhttp://my.hrw.com
