Last week we learned the difference between mood and tone. This week we are continuing to focus on identifying the mood and tone in our anchor text Heart and Soul. We are supporting the mood and tone with text evidence.
We had a great time at our Fall Party! Check out the fun.
We have been learning the different types of figurative language. Using SHAMPOO helps us remember all of the different types. We are identifying figurative language in our class anchor text Heart and Soul and also in our independent reading books. We have also been working hard to determine the meanings of the figurative language expressions when they are used in the text. Seeing figurative language used by many author’s helps us to realize how this gives a story more description and detail.
We have also learned about idioms, can identify them and explain what they mean in the text.
This week is Red Ribbon Week and we have many activities for the students to participate in.
