In English class, the sixth graders have been busy on many fronts! We just finished reading the book Bud, Not Buddy, a story about a boy seeking his father, with quite a twist at the end! Students wrote an essay comparing this book with the one we read in the Fall, One Crazy Summer, about three girls discovering their mother. Lots of material to compare and contrast!
Along the way, students have been memorizing the Poem of the Month and writing poems of their own. Our poem for April is Learning English, and the students wrote their own poems, Learning Latin, which of course, they are doing in the room next door!
A grammar refresh has them spotting parts of speech in passages from the books and poems they have read. Who can find all 34 nouns? It's not as easy as it sounds!
