101 Things I am Thankful For Piece is due Tonight!

26 Nov

Today we will be in the Library (back middle section), using the laptops to work on our 101 Things I am Thankful For piece. The Assignment is on Google Classroom.

Here are the requirements:

  • Come up with a title besides “101 Things I am Thankful For.”
    For example: “101 Little Things in Life,” “101 Excuses to Wake Up Early,” “Why I Love Life.”
  • This assignment is about details. Don’t list things; write the details about the things you’re thankful for.
    For Example: Don’t write “My dog.” Instead, write “Getting licked on my face by my dog when I get home from school.” “When my dog runs to fetch the ball.”
  • Break your poem into 4 stanzas of 25 lines, and 1 stanza of just 1 line. The 1-line stanza should be something really important.
  • Do not number your lines!
  • Don’t list. Write the details.
  • Avoid repetitive structure (don’t start every line with the same words).
