In Class or.. a summary for what Harbeck said on the math page.
- Ms. Hay told us that we have to make Integer poems, which is no surprise since Harbeck told us on Wednesday.
- 5 Integer poems. Pick any kind you want, (from the paper she gave us).
- Poem must be about the following: Adding Integers, Subtracting Integers, Partitive Division, Quotative Division , The "Rule for Multiplying" integers (Ron's Rule, Pratts Law, Mel's Rockpile etc)
- You need 3 different types of poetry in Chapter One. You can do the following : Haiku, Tanka, Cinquain, Free Verse Poetry, Picture, Diamante
- ALL DUE FRIDAY!
So, during class we started our poems. But it was SOO hard, especially if you're sitting beside the most annoying..ist? boy in the world.. : CASEY. Haha, just kidding. :) Here's one of my ROUGH COPIES. It's not a FOR SURE poem, just something I tried out.
Diamante: Diamante is the Italian word for diamond. The poetic form takes the shape of a diamond when it is completed. A diamante is a seven line poem.There are two patterns to choose from. Pattern one develops one topic. Pattern two starts out with one theme and in the middle begins to move toward an opposite theme.
Line 1: Choose a topic (noun)
Line 2: Use two describing words (adjectives)
Line 3: Use three action words (verbs)
Line 4: Use a four-word phrase capturing some feeling about the topic
Line 5: Use three action words (verbs)
Line 6: Use two describing words (adjectives)
Line 7: Use a synonym for an ending word (noun)
Example 1: This poem expresses one theme about a pop singing star.
Singing, dancing, shouting
Mesmerizing the adoring audience
Performing, working, reaching
Adding Integers Poem
Problem Solving, simple
Thinking, increasing, gaining,
always trying your hardest,
receiving, completing, finishing,
Easy, fun to do,
Here are some sites that might help you guys write some poems!
I can't find one about Picture Poems
So, I guess that's it. That's all I got completed, well I mean.. this was the only 'rough copy' I had for my poems. I don't want the world to see MY REAL poems yet anyway! Haha, Good luck on your poems!
oh, and the next scribe is.. Tracy.
BTW, please comment and make corrections for me! Especially you Harbeck, if this wasn't how I was suppose to do the scribe for December 1, tell me! So I can fix it as soon as possible. Thanks. Oh, and I'm not really sure if there is a math/unit test tomorrow. But you guys should still study everything that we learned for this unit (Not Poetry)!
