Poetry Unit

For our poetry unit, we wrote… Poems! For our first 1-2 weeks, we read books and got inspiration of other poems to write our own poems. We did this for a lot of days and we eventually got used to writing poems daily. Our poetry unit is still going, and it will keep on going ’till the end of April. A important poem that our class wrote was a “I am from” poem. For this poem, you have to state like different,”Where I’m from”s, like, “I am from trees”. My favorite poems were the ones that we wrote ourselves for our homework. I like these types of poems because you could write about whatever you want to write about! It doesn’t even need to rhyme! I enjoy the freedom of poetry.

Immigration Wevideo

Our class did an immigration about different countries. I chose Russia because it is a big place with lots of information to research about. On the first days when we started the project, we had to write the voiceover and the storyboard of whats going to happen in the movie/video. For our voiceover, we had to write sooooo many paragraphs about our “fake” trip to America. We had to write from where are hometown is, to where our new home in America is going to be. For our storyboard, we drew a strip of comic-like pictures to determine what will happen through out our story. The for our photo shoot, we took pictures of where we would take the photos of our story board. Some of the pictures required a green screen so we took a picture in front of a green wall, then we used this app called “Doink” to merge the picture we want to be in to the picture with the green screen. My favorite green screen pic is this:
