Students will gain knowledge about 3 types of poetry: Quatrain, Acrostic, and Haiku.  They will read an example of each poem through and answer questions over these poems and how they are categorized.

Go to Readworks.org .  You have an assignment already assigned to you titled “Spring into Poetry”.  You will need to go back to the article to answer the questions over these poems.  This is an assignment that I am going to reassign to you until you have a score of 75% or higher, so make sure you try your hardest and look up the answers the first time, and then you will have it done.  It can be read to you.  I will be available through email and google classroom to answer questions.
