March Break & Poetry

Posted by Jenn on March 14, 2013  •  No Comments

We start our March break soon! Today was the last day of classes for the week!! Tomorrow, Friday, is Track & Field Day for the elementary and middle school students. I’ll be in charge of moving from event to event with the 7th and 8th grade girls. In the afternoon there are no classes and we teachers will have parent-teacher conferences. Then at 7:30pm I’ll be back at school to start the middle school all-nighter. I’ll be there until about 6:30am. I’m excited, although I am hoping I am able to stay awake. 🙂

I am SO THANKFUL to have March break this coming week. I don’t have many exciting plans but I am hoping to get ahead on some planning. I’m going to be teaching novel units on Holes and The Witch of Blackbird Pond when we return. My goal is to plan those two units amidst sleeping in during the week off.

We just finished up our poetry unit in literature. My students (my “kids”) wrote some amazing poetry. I’m going to share some of their poems with you over the next several days. I’ll post one or two poems each day. I hope this gives you a small glimpse into what we’ve been doing in the classroom and also a small glimpse into the minds of my “kids.”
