I hope you are geared up and ready to roll for a fabulous new nine weeks. We are in full swing now back to studying a new group of root words and vocabulary words. Together we are reading a wonderful short story called “All Summer in a Day”. I highly recommend you look it up online and reread it several times for your AR reading at home. Remember, as I have stated many times before, your 30 minutes of reading can include your AR book, homework from other classes, magazines and other materials you enjoy. Just be sure to log it DAILY on your yellow Reading Log. I need to see the date, the title, the number of pages read, and what type of material it is.
Also the following are our vocabulary words from “All Summer in a Day”. This is a wonderful story with much figurative language. See if you can pick out the similes, metaphors, hyperboles, and personification. By Friday, you should have used at least 5 of these words in a poem, jingle, song, or comic/cartoon.
