Many of us were really excited to start a mini unit on poetry because we love having the chance to show our creativity. Others are really strong writers and enjoy the opportunity to paint pictures in our readers' minds using words. A few of us are unsure whether we like poetry or not, but we are keeping an open mind about our learning.
To deepen our understanding of these literary devices, we listened to a new French song this week by Zaho called Tourner la page; it is full of examples of les figures de style which we tried to identify, categorize, and understand. You can watch the music video of this song below. We are also reading a variety of poems with different styles to get a better idea of how we might use these literacy devices in our own writing when we compose our poems.
