Open / Closed Door Policy

closed colorful doors

Since all assignments are due by 4PM and I want to focus on the class that I am teaching, please do not open the closed classroom door to turn something in to the basket.  If the door is open, it’s fine to quietly step in, deliver the assignment to the basket and leave.  Thank you.

January Haiku

January day. . . 

Clear, stars, slow wake to sunlight –

Half the house still sleeps.

Saturdays are best-

Pleasant ski with a friend, then

Warm home, book, and tea.

Poetry Out Loud 2018

Hello Students,

When we return to school in January, we will have two weeks to memorize a poem from the Poetry Out Loud website.  I know you all have worked on this activity at least once and some of you, three times.  Choose a poem of at least 14 lines (the length of a sonnet) and memorize it.

Starting January 8, we’ll explore poetry:  reading poems, annotating, and analyzing poems.

Have a great break and here’s to a great 2018!
