The poetry we are exploring and writing is incredible! Students really enjoyed creating their ‘so much depends upon’ poem inspired by William Carlos Williams and also their ‘black out’ poetry. We will explore and write some more next week!
We will also be wrapping up our next Word Work lesson this week. Students will get their assignments back on Tuesday and can prepare for their assessment taking place on Thursday.
This week we will launch right into our new unit with a review of what we mean when we talk about equivalent fractions! (Think chocolate bars!)

What is the Seigneurial System of land ownership?
Who were les filles du roi?
Why was the Quebec Act passed?
What was the Underground Railroad?
How did the Great Migration change the Lowlands?
What is Grosse-Ile?
