Reading- Students have just started learning out nonfiction text structures. The main types of text structure are sequence, problem and solution, cause and effect, compare and contrast and description. Students will be learning about the different types of text structures and how different paragraphs are written with clue words that let them identify these different types of text structure.
Students will also be learning out the different structures of poetry including rhyme, meter and stanzas. Students will be looking at different types of figurative language that are used in poetry. We will be using the say ISHAMPOO to help remember the different types of figurative language. Students will learn about Idioms, Similes, Hyperbole, alliteration, metaphors, personification and onomatopoeia. Students will learn what each type of figurative language structure is and how they can identify them in poetry.
There is a LOT of information to cover in this particular unit, so it will continue to be taught into the next year.
