We have been studying all types of figurative language. We have learned about similes, metaphors, personification, hyperboles and more. We have learned how to identify the different types of figurative language and also to determine the meaning. We also learned how to recognize an idiom and determine the meaning.
Boosterthon is here! We had a lot of fun at the Pep Rally to kick off Boosterthon. The students are excited each day to attend the team huddles and learn the lesson for the day. They are looking forward to the Fun Run on Thursday, October 12th. Our class is doing a great job earning those pledges.
Our class name is Smith’s Royal Knights
We have been working on identifying the different types of Point of View: first person, second person and third person. We have also learned there are three different types of third person point of view: objective, limited and omniscient. We have also been working on applying our learning of point of view when using various passages and also our text Night of the Spadefoot Toads.
We have been focusing on answering text dependent questions and citing text evidence. We are using the RACE strategy when answering these types of questions.
Students need to be sure and use an evidence starter when citing text evidence.
Today was our first day of school and our first day of 5th grade. We spent our time learning about each other, our classroom and our procedures. I am looking forward to a fantastic year.
