Warm up exaggeration

Warm up: Exaggeration

  • Think. Sometimes people use exaggeration to add humor to their storytelling or even just in their everyday life.

  • Example: Ms. Furness’ purse is large enough to hold a human baby.

  • Example: I was so angry that I thought I thought my head would explode.

  • Non-example: There are over 10,000 lakes in Minnesota (it’s not an exaggeration because it is true!)


Think pair share

Think-Pair-Share

  • Think. What are some exaggerations that you hear/use in your own life?(Example: “I’m so hungry I could die.”)

  • Share with your assigned partner.

  • The person who has more letters in their last name shares first (and if it’s a tie, find a way to solve it that does not involve asking your teacher; it’s tri 2!).


Tri 2 google doc set up

Tri 2 Google Doc Set Up

  • You are going to create a new Google Doc for your Tri 2 daily work.

  • Please title it EXACTLY as you are instructed! Many of you are still typing things like, “H4,” you are skipping spaces, etc. Believe it or not, your attention to detail and instructions is incredibly important; so even though this seems picky, it is training you for life skills!

  • Create a NEW Google Doc that is titled:

    4, Brown, Charlie, Tri 2

  • SHARE to [email protected]

Purpose for reading 1 figurative language

Purpose for Reading #1:Figurative Language

  • As we will do with all of our poem reading, we will read this through AT LEAST twice.

  • The first time through, get an idea of what this poem is about.

  • ROAR buck time! With your partner, see if you can find examples of these in the poem (don’t forget line numbers):

  • Internal rhyme: words that have similar ending sounds in the SAME line of poetry (i.e. The Cat in the Hat)

  • End rhyme: words that have similar ending sounds at the END of lines in poetry (i.e. shout/out, lines 5 & 6)

  • Alliteration: words whose beginning have the same SOUND (i.e. Crunchy, chocolatey Kit Kats keep me happy)

  • Imagery: words that paint a picture or appeal to a reader’s five senses (the golden sun dipped behind the clouds)
