     It is crucial that students complete all of their work when it is assigned, meet all the expectations set forth for each assignment, and put forth 100% effort on ALL assignments.  Extra assignments and other extra work will not be provided to raise a grade. However, there will occasionally be exra credit opportunities built into the the already existing assessments that are given throughout the year. 

     

     Here are some ways you will see extra credit offered:

     

    1.) Extra credit questions on quizzes and test

    2.) Some additional options for task completion on projects

    SNOW

     

    The snow is a bird, soft-feathered and white.

    Silent and graceful is her flight

    As she swoops to earth and spreads her wings

    Over the beautiful unborn things;

    Seeds and bulbs that soon will tower

    Out of the next of the ground, and flower.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Directions/Assignment: In this poem, the author compares the snow to a bird.  What else can snow be compared to?  Write your own poem explaining your comparison. Your poem MUST be at least “6” lines.
