This month the 6th graders will complete their Sonnet and present to the class. They were to write a sonnet of something they are passionate about in 14 lines – three quatrains and a couplet. The sonnet must also have a ABAB/CDCD/EFEF/GG rhyme scheme and include a volta (the turn). Lastly, the students were required to memorize the sonnet and then present to the class. They have the choice to sing, rap, or use an instrument while presenting. I am very anxious to hear the presentations and I am hoping you will encourage your child to share their sonnet with you as well.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Thank you!
