Tuesday, April 15 • Open agenda to today’s date. • Write quote in composition book. “A simile is like a song, it’s easy to remember. A metaphor makes soft white snow sifted sugar in December. A little alliteration lets the lesson linger longer. A rake that’s been personified slips and hurts its finger. Hyperbole exaggerates: Her crying caused a flood. Onomatopoeia imitate: Kaboom, Kerplunk, Ka-thud.” • Get out Poet’s toolbox and rough draft of collage if you did not turn it in yesterday. • Read silently
Agenda – 4/15/14 • Quote • Figurative Language Collage • The Last Thing I Remember • Poetic Devices • HW – read at least 10 pages in your book. • Bring address of person to mail letter.
Learning Target • I can identify and analyze poetic devices – figurative language, rhythm, sound, form in poetry.
