Go Sox!


Wally

The 2014 baseball season is officially underway!  1st grade friends are hoping our support can lead the Red Sox to another World Series Championship.  Opening Day at Fenway Park is always a special day so we took the celebration into the classroom to show a little Sox Spirit!


As part of our poetry unit 1st graders learned the correct form of creating a diamante which ties perfectly with baseball.


Noun
two adjectives
three _ing words
4 word phrase
three _ing words
two adjectives
Noun


This form of poetry also helps us practice the different parts of speech. As a class we brainstormed baseball nouns. 1st graders came up with everything from Wally to Dustin Pedoria to Big Papi, even hot dog. We brainstormed adjectives and baseball words ending in -ing. Students then created their own baseball diamante poems to decorate our classroom door.
From all of us 1st graders in Red Sox Nation we wish the Sox the best of luck in their 2014 season. Let's "Play Ball"!
