Welcome to 3rd term. Spring has sprung and I hope everyone had a fun-filled, restful Spring Break. Let's share some of our highlights. Post in the comments section.
I'll begin: My children and friends organized a surprise 60th birthday party for me...I did not suspect a thing because it is a month before my actual birthday. My mom and siblings came from Ontario and took me on a great holiday to Vancouver Island. I am so fortunate to have such a loving family and caring friends.
Here are the Makerspace Learning Journey inspiration pages you completed.
Only 10 of you posted your speech topics over the holidays. Have a look at what is there if you still have not posted and be sure to choose a different topic.
Topics: smoking, oil spills, racism, cancer, history of Riverview hospital, importance of trees, judgement, Syrian civil war, overcoming obstacles, best friends.
We are continuing our poetry unit with concrete poems. A Concrete Poem is a poem whose meaning is conveyed through shape or pattern on the page. The poem takes shape of the object it describes. The meaning is created by both, the way words sound and look. The print of the poem takes shape as a collage or picture to accentuate the meaning.
Here are some examples. Try this concrete poetry link to practice writing your own.
