Tonight’s blog involves a two-part writing prompt.  You will write a paragraph for EACH prompt.  In other words, you need two paragraphs!

  • Think about something you own that you treasure.  Then imagine how you would feel if you lost that cherished item or thing.  In a paragraph of 7-10 complete sentences, explain how you would feel if you lost that treasured item and why you would react that way.
  • How would you define love?  What is love?  What is it not?  Do you think poems are a good way to convey your love for someone?  Why or why not?

 You will need the GALE password for these notes; see Mrs. Hamilton or your agenda for tonight.
