Homework from this month’s meeting

Hi All,

Thank your to all for the lovely card and the gift! I truly believe that it is a cooperative with everyone working together, so while a gift is unnecessary, it is appreciated! Thank you.

I just want to recap the “homework” from yesterday. I realize that it added up.

1. The next poem in our Poem Journal. Please have your child (or write for your child) about something they are good at and read the poem to whomever they can. Skype, facetime, etc. are all good ways to share reading. Even if grandparents are not good at English, they will probably appreciate being read to!

2. Write 2 or 3 diamantes and send them to me via email about a week before our next meeting. Please send them without a name. I will compile the diamantes, and we will discuss our impressions and opinions at the next meeting. I will give the kids a brief template or model to use to help the discussion along. I will bring copies. I will also try to post the compilation of poems to the email group. This way if you have a new reader and you have time, you can preview the poems if you want. I will try my best to send an early attachment.

3. Moms and Dads are also welcome to write and send me their diamantes. It would be great for the kids to see us write, too.
Mei did a great job with her birthday! Please tell her how impressed we were with the bubbles and her presentation!

Thank you,
