This week, we have been learning about poetry elements. We know that poetry is used to express feelings or emotions. Good writers use different poetic elements to express their thinking. Your task is to select a picture from Storybirdto create similes, metaphors, alliteration, personification, onomatopoeia or hyperboles.
In class, we have discussed the importance of identifying the theme or central message when we read stories, poems or interact with social media. After watching this commercial, you will think about the following questions:
1- Can you determine the central message or theme that the producers are trying to communicate?
2- Why do you think this commercial was created?
Technology is here to stay. More than ever, our classrooms are becoming a creative outlet to bring the world to our students. Thus, we are one step closer to bringing our schools into the 21st century!
