For the past couple of weeks the grade 5/6’s have been focusing on poetry. On Friday we looked at the 6 room poem. (I’m not sure if that’s what its called.) In the 1st room you think of something that you enjoy. This is what your poem will be about. In the 2nd room you think of the colors and the lighting of the image you saw in your mind in the first room. In the 3rd room you think of the sounds you can hear. In the 4th room you think of questions you have about you image. In the 5th room you explain your feelings about the image. And in the final room you think of a important word, this you will repeat 3 times through out the poem. Now you construct your poem, this is what I came up with.

I see the colors stacked on the shelf

.Smiggle, Smiggle, Smiggle 

Pink,Purple,Blue,Green,Black piled on the shelf  

 Smiggle, Smiggle, Smiggle

Children’s laughter fills the air

.Smiggle, Smiggle, Smiggle

 Excitement fills my tummy

 Smiggle , Smiggle, Smiggle



Here is another one:

 Dim lighting in the room

Super clay, Super clay, Super clay

The colors Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, Black,  White

  Super clay, Super clay, Super clay

 Creativeness ran through me 

 Super clay, Super clay, Super clay

Where do you get it from?

Super clay, Super clay, Super clay 


Lest we forget. 100wc week #11

Remembrance day is when we remember the people who went to war to fight for our country.

Every-where in the world remembrance day is celebrated.

Memorials are in most of the grave yards so we can remember the people who died for us.

Every family has a relative that went war. Whether it be a close friend or a grandfather.

Many families suffer from the wars.

Be grateful to those who fought for our survival.

Every one needs remembrance day.

Remember the ones that went to war for us. Our family. The world we live in today.
