Targets for Today:
I can read science fiction or fantasy and prepare to symbolically share a scene from the book.
I can recognize Greek word parts and use them to figure out unfamiliar words.
I can summarize a poem, and identify central ideas (for poems based on nonfiction events and people) and themes for poems.
Today’s Agenda for Monday/Tuesday, April 30/May 1, 2018:
1. Individual, quiet reading
2. (A2+) Practice with figurative language
3. Word Part Review
4. Finish poems for summary, central idea, and theme
5. We have read several poems about war, and found their central ideas and themes. Now write -- in your composition book under Reading Responses -- one or two paragraphs about how you feel about war.
See Tuesday/Wednesday, April 24/25, 2018.
Sample for the Photo/Figurative Language Assignment:
Identify each type of figurative language.
On your poster you will identify each.
It felt to number thirty-four like centuries before he got to play.
Number thirty-four jumped like a trout at a fly.
The basketball had been a bird flying through the air just to land in his hands.
The basket was waiting patiently for that ball to come to it.
Swish went the ball into the basket.
He was a Michael Jordan!
The basketball bounced briefly before banging against the backboard and beautifully bouncing into the basket.
