Last week we hosted a guest author from Hollywood, Sonya Sones, who introduced us to some of her work and rewarded us with Oreo cookies when we created similes together in class. If you get a chance, please thank Mrs. Klucznik, our amazing librarian, for all her hard work. She even arranged for us to have snacks!
Mrs. Klucznik is like a waterfall, refreshing and welcome, as we wrestle with the tangled vines of the academic jungle.
At the beginning of this week we will be going to the LMC PC lab where we will be able to create our own individual pages of poems - created by our class for our class. I think we'll call it, "Random Poetry Written by Anonymous Students About Subjects which May or May Not be Applicable to Them". Or maybe we'll just call it, "Insights".
Toward the end of the week we will be reading another short story, "Everyday Use". While you are reading it, think about your heritage and what rituals and practices have been handed down to you by your parents and family. My family is Polish and loves to tell stories, even if they are slight embellishments of the truth. Of course, at the ends of the more extravagant stories, there is always the question, "Is that TRUE?," to which the answer is always "mostly, but I added that last part because it sounded really good".
Have a great day!
PS - Send me a little note if you read this blog ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 5. I'm curious to see how many people check it and how often. (If you do, I'll give you a 5point bonus on your next quiz.)
