The sixth graders spent the year leaning about poetry and how the words are organized into lines and stanzas.  Poetry is a form of literature that uses rhythm, rhyme, sound, or structure to express something in an artistic way.


The sixth graders also spent the year learning about current events, using a website called Flocabualry.  The website introduced current events through educational hip-hop songs and videos for 2017-2018 school year.


For this year's project, students created raps based on current events, using a variety of rhyme schemes.  The students planned videos, created backgrounds, and rapped their original songs/raps.
