Welcome back and Happy New Year! This month's main focus in grade 6/7 Language Arts will be poetry. There are many elements of poetry that our lessons will touch upon such as mood, tone, symbolism, meter, rhyme, figurative language, connotation, repetition, imagery, irony, diction, form and stanza (just to name a few). Students will study classic poems, famous poets as well as discover their own inner poet.
The class novel that will be used as a read-aloud will be The Hand of Robin Squires written by Joan Clark. This fiction novel is based on the actual "assumed" treasures hidden at Oak Island in Nova Scotia.
