This week, the students read another tale from the book The Stories Julian Tells. We analyzed more figurative language such as imagery and personification. We discussed how imagery is a vivid description that uses the five senses to create a picture (image!) in our minds or the reader's mind. We discussed how personification is a description that gives a non-human thing human (person!) characteristics. For example, "The seeds were dreaming."
Some books for exploring imagery include: Snowflake Bentley, There is a Flower at the Tip of My Nose Smelling Me, and Where the Wild Things Are.
Some books for exploring personification include: Dirty Laundry Pile, Open Wide: Tooth School Inside, Sweet Tooth,and When I Was Built.
