Figurative Language Dolls
Hello! Today, my Smore article is about our Figurative Language Dolls. Over the past few weeks, Mrs. Mihalik has been teaching us about figurative language, such as onomatopoeia, similes, alliteration, hyperbole, personification, idioms, and metaphors. We get the dolls by finding figurative language in our reading, then we turn in a Post-it note telling in what book we found the figurative language and on which page. Thanks for reading this! Happy reading!

The Report On Mythology
Now we'll move on to Roman myths. The myths mostly had to do with politics and morality. Many planets are named after Roman gods. For example, Jupiter is Zeus in Roman myths. Roman myths are the basis for the traditional myths showing ancient Rome's origins. These are some examples: Jupiter--god of lightning; Mars--god of war; Saturn--the Titan father of Jupiter; Venus--goddess of love and beauty; Juno--god of marriage; and Neptune--god of the sea.
Now we have the great Norse myths. People all around the world have been inspired and mystified with Norse myths. The ruler of Asgard is Odin and probably the most powerful and respected god in Norse mythology. Thor is also a very respected god since he is powerful and a superhero in the modern world. Ha ha. The rival of Thor and the most vengeful god: LOKI!!!! The most feared being since Darth Vader. He is a troublesome god and a super villain in the modern world. He is in the same movie as Thor. I bet that makes Thor really upset.
Now, my most favorite kind of myths. Egyptian myths!!!!! The main gods of Egypt are: Osiris--god of the dead and the underworld; Isis--the supreme Mother goddess;: Horus-- the god of light and birds; Set--the god of fire and chaos; Ra--the god of the sun; Nut--the goddess of the sky; Anubis--the god of the judgement of death; and Nephthys--the goddess who symbolizes the trial of death. Each type of myth is from a different perspective of Romans, Egyptians, Norse, or Greeks. Thanks for reading!
I Care Robot
By Steoshan (Stephen and Roshan)
In "I Care" this last month Roshan, Amadeu, Julio and I made a ROBOT! The robot has a simple motor that makes the "arms" turn around. We call it the "DanceBot2000" because the arms make it look like it's dancing. Here's Roshan with the scoop on building the robot.
Julio and Stephen had already made the base which was a giant truck. Then we started building the arms and we found a motor that could move the arms. We decided to put it on. After that we put the whole thing together and we turned the motor on. It made the arms spin around like it was about to throw something. That was how we built the robot. Now back to Stephen.
Well, now you know how and who made the robot, but what was its purpose? The purpose of the robot was to see what we could do with the motor we found!
