Work on 101 Things I’m Thankful For Piece

20 Nov

Today we will be in room A206 to type and post our 101  Things I am Thankful For Piece. Post it on the class Kidblog site.

The piece is due Tuesday by 11:59 PM EST

Here are the instructions:

Be sure to:

-Don’t just mention a thing you are thankful for, mention a quality about it for example: Don’t say “My Dog,” say “When my dog plays catch with me” This way you can mention multiple qualities about a single thing.

  • -Write it in 4 stanzas of 25 lines, with a 1 stanza line for a super special item.
  • -Give your piece a creative title (not “101 Things I’m Thankful For”).
  • -Do not number your Things.

This assignment must be posted on Kidblog by the end of the day Tuesday November 21st.
