*No Homework Tonight
Today, students completed an assignment about how to use context clues to define a word. They also practiced using dictionaries to find the meanings for words when context clues were not enough! I was very impressed with the enthusiasm about using dictionaries!
Students also completed an assignment about how a narrator’s point of view influences how events are described in a text. Students have such an impressive amount of background knowledge when it comes to poetry, and it has been wonderful to explore these poems with them. We studied words that indicate point of view, and identified the narrator’s specific point of view in “I Hear America Singing” by Walt Whitman and “I, Too” by Langston Hughes.
Have a wonderful evening!
