Poem #3 and Some News!

First, here's today's poem:


Tackling in football
Missing the birdie
Missing the ball
Getting a strike
Hitting the ball out of the park
Digging in the dirt when I take 3rd


We discussed how a writer can make the ending of a poem the same as the beginning and give it a nice circular structure if he/she chooses.

Now, some class news - We have a class fish (it's a Betta) and today we named him... her?
"Swimmy" won out with 7 votes. The runners-up were "Flame" and "Robin Hood" with 3 votes each. So, welcome to the class, Swimmy!

In other news, we started our first science unit today. We're studying weather, which will include a big detour into the study of water.

Last, there is a schedule change. Our class now has Art on Monday at 1:30 and PE on Tuesday at 12:40.

Buenas noches!

Mr. Fleischer

PS - Also, thank you to everyone for making sure that in-class snacks are nut-free! It's going great!
