-Brainstorm and write two verses of your poem each day.  On day 4, type a final draft.  Don’t forget the closing two lines.   Please mark papers as per example sheet – “Evil Ka-Weasel…”  (NOTE TO SELF – DO Example sheet as an attachment” Bring me your rough draft with markings and a final typed draft with no extra markings.

**TICKET OPPORTUNITIES:

1. You will receive one ticket for every vocabulary word you use once.

2. Draw a picture to go along with your paper.  Please label the back of your picture with the Lesson#/Date and your name.  You may draw the picture on the same paper as your final if you wish.  If separate paper – please use a standard size sheet of 8 1/2 x 11.

-Remember to put at least one “Alliteration” in the poem.

-There is an example on page 10 of the Student Workbook, but I would avoid it.  It has someone else’s pictures from their head and if you read it, it may be hard to come up with your own.  The parents should read it to get the idea.

-Pull out Vocabulary Cards from the back of Student Workbook for “Lesson 1”.  Make sure to write a 1 in the right corner of each card and a single hole punch on the left side of card.  Place on a ring for easy drill practice.
