Another week and here we are! Thank you for sending me letters this week. It has been fun getting to know you all! Every week I will be emailing you activities to complete from home. Many of you came pretty close to finding all the errors in our find the errors contest! There were 17 errors in the letter! Never rely on spell check or grammar check even if you are typing on a computer! It’s good to learn all you can in Language Arts class. =)
WEEK OF 3/30-4/3:
POETRY: Please complete FIVE different poems from the poetry packet and make your own anthology. Your anthology will be a book of 5 poems. There was writing space given in the packet to try to write the different types of poems or you can type them. There are directions on the last pages of the packet on how to create an anthology and I would love for you to send me your anthologies by April 3rd so I can read your poems and responses! If you are missing the packet, it is on my website and you can get a copy there. My website is mcculloughn.com if you need it.
READ AND WRITE! Please read the story called The Roach. Find the story at https://scope.scholastic.com/issues/2019-20/030120/the-roach.html
DO THIS AFTER READING: Mona's mom had a saying tacked on the fridge: Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened. Think about how that saying applies to an event in your life. Then write a paragraph about something that makes you smile because it happened. Email me a copy of your paragraph after you write it (taking a picture of it using your phone works) and hang the paragraph up in your room or on your fridge if you’d like! My email is email@example.com
FOR FUN: Try this poetry WORD SEARCH! http://www.knowledgehouse.info/njfk/PoetryTermsWordSearch.pdf
