Students were given chess pieces, fabric, buttons, money, dice, and blocks, to create a poem based on what they observe. In poetry today we will be looking at metaphors and similes within a poem. Students will pick the theme of their poem today as well! In math this morning we looked at the new calendar pieces. It was difficult to work with different areas involving the power of ten, but the kids gave it their best work and I was very proud. For having such a short week, it went well!
