Roses are Red, Violets are Blue....

Our 6th grade poets will dazzle you....

The 6th Grade ELA team is using technology as they focus on poetry. They started the unit off with a Figurative Language Webquest. They also incorporated the new online textbook companion--Pearson's SuccessNet Plus-- to help understand components of writing and figurative language.

After spending time learning about poems and figurative language, the equipped sixth grade classes dove into the library and searched for examples of specific types of poems to use as they created a Poem Book. To top it all off, the students authored several original poems to include in their books.
