MAKING BISCUITS WITH OUR BUDDIES! Our last buddy session was so fun! We decorated biscuits with icing sugar and different lollies to make an emoji character. We used jelly beans, snakes and all types of lollies. We took a picture of our biscuits and then added them to our comic strips. Our comic strips included different backgrounds and a story line. Here are some pictures of what we did!
A Haiku poem is a traditional Chinese poem that is used to write about the environment. Haiku poems have a particular structure. It is made up of 3 lines. The 1st line has 5 syllables. The 2nd line has 7 syllables. The 3rd line has 5 syllables. Syllables can be tricky to count but our tip is to count the vowels in the word and to also place you hand under your chin and say the words. Every time your chin touches your hand that is a one syllable count!
Diamante poems are trickier to write than Haiku poems. The shape of the poem is a diamond and it is an opposites poem. Opposites include day and night, white and black, happy and sad. The first half of the poem talks about one noun then it flips to talk about it’s opposite. The first line consists of one word, which is your topic. The second line is two describing words. The third line is three verbs. The fourth and longest line talks about both things. The fifth line includes 3 verbs about the opposite idea. The sixth line has two describing words and the last line has one word which is the opposite to the first line.
Here is one we created together as a class! We used friendship and bullying as an example. Isn’t it powerful?
LIMERICKS! We really enjoyed learning about limericks because they are meant to be funny poems and can include nonsense! A Limerick poem also has a certain structure. The first and second line has 8 syllables and have to rhyme at the end. The third and fourth line have 5 syllables and are a different rhyme. The last line has 8 syllables again and needs to rhyme with the first and second line. Here are some of our examples!
