What have we been up to?
We have also been working on understanding the different types of figurative language (similes, metaphors, etc). We listened to "Fireflies" by Owl City to help us point how figurative language is used in many different ways. Last week, we created cartoon inspired onomatopoeias (see pictures below), and we will continue working on a different figurative language skill each day.
In math, our focus went from learning about variables to geometry. We have been learning about polygons and types of triangles. We are gearing up for the math MCA tests, which will take place at the end of the month. See schedule below.
