UOI: Today we used books to explore non-fiction text features. Students were partnered up to answer questions based on the book given to them and explain what non-fiction text feature they used to help them. I encouraged them to look at the table of contents, glossary and index to help them find their information with more effectively.









Recess/Lunch

Inquiry into Language: We took up our homework on similes! We went through the answers together as a class and then watched a video explaining similes a little more.

As a class, we brainstormed some more similes together!
Inquiry into Math: We played an introduction game to fractions! With a partner, the students were given task cards that they had to solve. They couldn't move on to the next task card unless they checked in with me. We had a lot of fun solving these fraction tasks!


Oakwood Christmas Concert: We went to support our friends at Oakwood.

Lunch

Inquiry into Language: Today we explored metaphors. We watched a video to help us recognize the difference between a metaphor and a simile.

Inquiry into Language: Today we learned what is a SIMILE! A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things using like or as. For example: She is as beautiful as a rose. I am hungry like a bear. We created a t-chart with one side for similes and the other side was for metaphors. We  organized different sentences under the correct figurative language device.
