Today, students began unit four- author’s purpose.
Students read “I Hear America Singing” by Walt Whitman and “I, Too” by Langston Hughes. Students wrote a brief summary of each poem and talked about how the two poems were connected.
Students also visited the media center and talked about book recommendations and had some time for silent reading.
Here is a funny video of my son, Rhys, if you’re interested! Rhys made quite the mess eating a smoothie, I am glad that fifth graders are a little bit more neat!! 😀
