Today we started by looking at our poem of the day, which was Shakespeare’s Sonnet number 18:

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

After the poem of the day I collected your ballads, which were due today. Then I split everyone up into three groups and the groups worked to identify the pattern of the sonnet. Then each group had to read through three sonnets and come up with one word to identify what the sonnet was about.
Worksheet and sonnets available here.
