Please type up the two cinquains you wrote in class yesterday in a Google Doc. Title the document "[student #] Cinquains" and share it with me. If you need a reminder, here is what was written on the ActivBoard:

Write a cinquain poem about something you can see in the classroom or out the classroom window.

A cinquain follows this format:

Line 1 - One word (a noun) naming the subject of the verse.
Line 2 - Two words (adjectives) describing the subject.
Line 3 - Three words (verbs) describing the subject's actions.
Line 4 - Four words giving the writer's opinion of the subject.
Line 5 - One word (noun) giving another name for the subject.


Example:

Violin
Brown, shapely
Singing, shrieking, sobbing
A moody music maker
Fiddle
