Literary Genres

February 14, 2011

The National Team Language Arts students are learning about the different types of Literary Genres. Last week we studied poetry and the students had an opportunity to explore their poetic side by writing a Cinquain poem. Cinquains  are unrhymed descriptive verses that consist of five formatted lines which focus on the strategic use of syllables. Having a Valentine's theme in mind students were asked to write a poem using the correct format. Please visit this link to view their work, Maria Santos's Website.
