Mars week 41

Will it ever stop?! I think not!

Mars produces beautiful, funny, and meaningful poetry

This week we worked on our “Who am I” poems and read them aloud during a “Guess Who?” game (where students read each other’s poems and guessed who wrote them). Strategies for developing: We help each other find words, we brainstorm words we can use, make mind maps, and we give feedback to each other so that we can improve our work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above you can see the two word clouds that the students have made themselves together with me during lessons. They show what you can include in your poems and how you make rhythm. Naturally, we do everything in Swedish and English, though, the end result is always in English. Note taking is encouraged as a strategy to help them remember.

 

Epigrams: Funny poems with a point

In the last few weeks we have worked on epigrams (short poems that are usually funny and have a message). We have written about school, school behaviour and rules. Strategies for developing: Brainstorming words & ideas, reading aloud together, giving feedback, mind maps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Glued Poetry:

This week and next week we will be cutting-up a poem in groups. It’s written by A.A. Miln who wrote Winnie The Pooh. This helps students practice their vocabulary (irregular verbs: ran, blew) and words to do with weather and times of the day. It is a simple poem with an interesting question: What makes wind? Where does it go? The students will also get to practice using punctuation and how to insert pauses / paragraphs (stycke) into their texts. The end result will be read aloud and look something like this:

Wind on the Hill

A.A. Miln

No one can tell me,
Nobody knows,
Where the wind comes from,
Where the wind goes.

It’s flying from somewhere
As fast as it can,
I couldn’t keep up with it,
Not if I ran.

But if I stopped holding
The string of my kite,
It would blow with the wind
For a day and a night.

And then when I found it,
Wherever it blew,
I should know that the wind
Had been going there too.

So then I could tell them
Where the wind goes…
But where the wind comes from
Nobody knows.

Praktisk Info!

Fredag 27/10 Pantomimteater “Hoppet”

Gustavsbergsteatern

”Alla barn har rätt till liv, överlevnad och utveckling” (FN:s barnkonvention)

Vi möts på nyheterna, på bussen, i skolan. Och de ensamkommande flykting-

barnen har en historia att berätta: om en barndom som inte fick fortsätta, om

krig och flykt. Nu är deras historier en del av vår gemensamma historia.

Pantomimteatern har lyssnat till några av berättelserna. De handlar om lyckan

över ett par nya sneakers, om längtan efter familjen och kompisarna, om

bottenlös rädsla och ensamhet. Men förunderligt nog också om ett hopp som

vägrar dö. Pantomimteatern vill ge röst åt några av de här barnens erfaren-

heter i en ordlös och visuell, fartfylld föreställning.

 

Skolenkäten

På schoolsoft finns ett informationsbrev med kod om hur ni fyller i en enkät kring skolan från Skolinspektionen. Vi önskar att alla vårdnadshavare fyller i den senast 20 oktober. Barnen fyller i enkäten i skolan.
