801, 802 & 803
Today's Reading Strategy was "Predict".
Your 3rd Reading Response on The Themes of "Effort & Achievement" as related to the Reading "The Starfish" and the song" The Climb" were due to be passed in today.
Reminder: Those of you who have not yet turned in your signed rubrics and associated work for marked assignments should please get those in ASAP.
LIBRARY DAY IS TOMORROW. Please bring any books you may have to exchange!
Today, we listened again to the song "Hands", by Jewel Kilcher.
We reviewed our discussion last class about the chorus:
"These hands are small I know,
But they're not yours they are my own"
We also reviewed the meaning of SENSE DATA and talked specifically about how our hands touch and feel. We also spoke of the kinesthetic experience of our hands and how our hands tell a story, through memories (scars, for example) and how these memories tell the tale of our experiences -- all of which make us unique.
Attached, please find the Powerpoint Presentation used in class to help you with directions for your "hands-on" Creative Piece "These Hands Are Small I know...." where you showcase an artistic rendering of your own hand and make associations to the symbolism that is tied up in our hands and fingers. We will continue with this in the second half of class, tomorrow.
If you have drawing tools you would like to bring, please do so ( coloured pencils, drawing pencils, images for collage, photos, etc.)
Attached, also, is Jewel's song "HANDS".
On this blog you will find homework and assignments and due dates. You may also documents and resources as related to what we are studying and working on in class.
