Tried It Tuesday!
We used Groundhog Gets A Say THE WEEK OF GROUNDHOG'S DAY...... and some teachers might just throw in the towel after almost a full week off due to snow, but not me!
After finally finishing our mentor sentence lesson, we were getting this darn poster finished!!!! So we didn't just have Groundhog Day, or Groundhog Week, but apparently, I'm dragging it out for the month.
Since we had been working so much with figurative language, I challenged them to use the facts we learned from the book to write sentences with all of the types of figurative language (alliteration, simile, metaphor, personification, onomatopoeia, hyperbole) in groups. They came up with some really great sentences!
"The groundhog dug out a zillion tons of dirt from the ground."
"Chomp, chatter! That fruit was delicious!"
"Flap! Flap! Flap! goes the groundhog's flappy ears."
"The whistlepig whistles in the windy wind."
