Having completed their warm-ups, students will go on to complete a Quizizz activity in which they will be asked to identify various sentence types. (Absent students may go to join.quizizz.com and complete the quiz using the following code: 535920).
When they have finished, they will go to PearDeck.com to participate in a Flashcard Factory game. After signing into the website, students will be paired up on either the day shift or night shift. Working with their partner, they will create flashcards for a set of 10 vocabulary words. One partner will be in charge of creating a sentence using the word while the other creates an original drawing. After 15 minutes, we will go over the examples created as a class and decide on which ones adequately represent the given word/definition and which ones do not. The team with the most selected cards wins.
Finally, students will complete the "My Papa's Waltz" activity. They will be given a copy of the poem and asked to analyze it on their own for 5 minutes. Afterwards they will be placed into groups. Working with their group members, they will create a 3 minute presentation in which they explain their analysis of the poem. The captain of each group will then present to the class.
