Two weeks and six long tests later our WASL tasks are complete! Now, we are diving into poetry. Geometry with words! We started with the word "tidbit" which I always took to mean a small bit. Well, the proper definition is, "very pleasing bit of food, news, etc." Some students felt that combining WASL with something pleasing was created and oxymoron. Others disagreed. Just like broccoli, some love the WASL and some don’t! Thankfully all of us are having fun with words; how they sound, how they look, and what they mean. Look to the left and click on the Poetry assignment to read poems from fifth graders!
I remember having to do the WASL in 5th grade, it was not at all fun, and it was very long. I remember those two years ago when I was in your class room. I remember when our class got the technology grant, and all the cool things we got. Thank you for being a great teacher to me when I was in your class,
P.S. I am trying to find time to come visit my old teacher friends at Larrabee, so I hope you are there that day. Please say Hi to Mrs. Young and Ms. Conlon for me, see you all very soon, hopefully!
