This unit we were really focusing on figurative language. We were focusing on hyperbole, personification, idiom, simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia and alliteration. I like to say onomatopoeia a lot because it sounds weird. I think alliteration is the hardest figurative language because I’d have to think of the same letter to start each word. My favorite kind of figurative language is idiom because I have to figure out what it means.
This week was fun. We had a crazy week. We had our new unit launch, and it was also crazy because Andrew built a super tall tower with base 10 blocks. It was taller than anyone in the class! (Including teachers) We also got our first nature walk. We also saw a dead owl. It was a barn owl. It was dead because it thought the window was an open space so it bumped its head in the window. Poor thing.
