This unit, Grade 2/3 is exploring the use of language to express themselves. Students explored Haiku, Acrostic poems, Diamond poems, and Shape poems. They also learned about rhyming, hyperboles, similes, personnification, and metaphors. As they explore the new poems, they practiced writing with each style. As a task, students were challenged to pick a type of poem, and to incorporate poetic devices while each choosing their own subject. Take a look below at our creations!

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
