Similes

In literacy, have been exploring and creating Similes.

We use Similes when we are comparing two things, using the words “like” or “as”. For example: “She was as busy as a bee” and “Last night I slept like a log” are both similes.Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 12.52.05 pm

Fractured Fairytales

In Topic Investigation, we have been exploring Fractured Fairytales.

A fractured fairy tale is a story that uses fairy tales you know and then changes the characters, the setting, points of view, or plots. Sometimes they just change the ending.
