Day 43!

Happy Thursday! We are inching toward the weekend!

We will begin with our Commonly Confused Words Quiz. You will be given all twelve sets of the words and you will pick ten of the sets to work with. For each word of the sets that you select, you will write a sentence that uses the words correctly.

After that, we will read Whitman's poem "I Sit and Look Out". We will read the poem together, and then you will TWIST through it to analyze it for meaning. We will compare it to "I Hear America Singing" and discuss how Whitman's attitude changed from the first poem to this one.

THEN comes the extra fun! You will adopt Whitman's ideas from this poem to create your own poem about what you see happening in the world around you! Check out this document for the information!
