Today Ms. B turned the tables on us and had 8th grade teach 6th grade annotation using a song! We used the song “Let it Go” from Frozen by Idina Menzel. We LOVE this song!!!!!! Each 6th grade student buddied up with an 8th grade “teacher”. Here is a shot of all of us at the table.
We listened twice and then the 8th graders taught us how to go line by line – we extracted the meaning- it was FUN- like a game of Clue! Here are some shots of this
After we did this we had an awesome discussion about “letting go” and then we wrote!
Miss B also showed us a VERY COOL rap about the elements of figurative language! This way we can remember such things as plot, character, theme,etc!
In math the 8th grade is embarking on an art based unit to teach Phythagora Theory. More to come on this next week!
