After Smith went over the lesson plan for today, she told us about our poetry gala (or fancy poetry day). The gala will be on Monday. This is a formal event, and you MUST dress nice all day. If anyone asks why you are dressed up, tell them you are attending a formal literary event. Do not tell them more than that. Next, we turned in our grammar worksheets, CSAP packets, and photos, and took our grammar quiz. After the quiz, we chose a photograph for our photograph poem, and signed up to participate in the poetry gala. Finally, Smith gave us the rest of the period to work on our poems.
Don't forget to choose one of the five poems we have written to add to the "Poem to Share" post on the class blog! This poem is for the poetry gala. Homework:
