Turn in at the beginning of the following month.
For distance learning the forms will be digital.
As part of the speaking and listening standards, each month students will memorize and present a self-selected poem to the class. You child may choose to do a poem we have practiced in class, a poem from one of the links below, or a poem that was found someplace else.
The poem must be published in a book or on the internet.
If poem is from "Room 25 Favorites", know the page number. If the poem is from someplace else, please email/text the poem so I can help, if needed, AND count the lines.
Students may earn extra points/lines if the spoken tone matches the tone of the poem, hand motions are used when appropriate, and the poem is done in a volume that the class can easily hear.
Students will lose points/line if the poem was not practiced to mastery level and on-going assistance is needed from the teacher.
If a longer poem is recited, the extra lines will be "banked", or saved, to be used later in the year.
