To review different parts of speech, students wrote poems using nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and prepositional phrases. Here are some examples:
Raspberry by Tadhg
Round, red balls go up
Round, red balls go up quickly
Round, red balls go up quickly into the clouds.
Cotton Candy by Charlotte
Puffy clouds fly
Puffy clouds fly lightly
Puffy clouds fly lightly into the sky.
Books by Ella
Vibrant books open rightly
Vibrant books open rightly for you to read.
This week, the students analyzed "The Microbe."
We practiced using context clues to define sanguine in the poem. We also looked at how the poet Hilaire Belloc used personification in the poem.
Some recommended books that use personification include:
The Giving Tree
The Little Red Pen
The Day the Crayons Quit
