In-class Poetry Out Loud performances are TOMORROW, THURSDAY 12/22.
Make sure you know your whole poem by heart (along with the title and author!), and practice performing it with feeling and understanding. Consider giving your family a treat and practice your performance for them! They can use the rubric on the back of your assignment sheet to give you some feedback.
Your Poetry Out Loud poem should be fully memorized for Monday 12/19 - you'll have the opportunity to perform for a small group of your peers and get feedback before the full in-class performance on Thursday.
