Today we focused on figurative language in our reading and writing. We discussed similes, metaphors, hyperboles, personification, alliteration, idioms, onomatopoeia, and allusion. We worked on finding examples in text as well as writing our own. Students were to find their own in their independent reading books. Please discuss this with your child at home.
Math test for unit 8 will be on Friday.
Please see the picture below of our lucky raffle winners! I have been doing a lot of reading these days! After reading the books, I have been raffling them off to the students for them to read. The 6 boys below were the first winners of our new raffle round 🙂 Happy Reading!
