Sugarloaf - Wednesday 

Alliteration: 

Watch the video at the link HERE

Example: 

  • Garry grumpily gathered the garbage. ( Each word starts with the letter G, that makes this sentence an alliteration!) 

    Spot the pattern in the two sentences below. 
  • Those lazy lizards are lying like lumps in the leaves.

  • Paula planted the pretty pink poppies in the pot.

Rhyme: 

Watch the video at the link HERE.

Example: 

I made the cookies one by one

I hear the bell, so they are done. 

 

The words one and done have the same ending sound. 

 

Poetic Devices: 

Today we are going to take a look at 4 poetic devices. Write one sentence for each device. 

Alliteration, simile, metaphor and rhyme

 

You must explain how great you are using only Alliteration. 

You are going to explain how great you are by using lots of alliteration. 

Examples: I am a happy, healthy, hardworking student.

 

You must explain how great you are using only Simile.

You are going to explain how great you are by explaining yourself using similes. Compare yourself to other things using like or as.

You must explain how great you are using only Metaphors. 

You are going to explain how great you are by explaining yourself using metaphor. Compare yourself to other things without using the words like or as!

Examples: I am a walking dictionary. I am a shining star. 

 

You must explain how great you are using only Rhyme

Science 

Paper Hovercrafts

Materials:

  • Square Paper

How it Works:

The pocket under the hovercrafts trap air and create a zone of high pressure. Further, the air moving over the craft has lower pressure. This difference creates lift and gets rid of the friction that normally holds the paper in place on the table. Without friction holding it back, a little breath is all it takes to get the hovercraft speeding on its way!

 

Extra Experiments:

  1. These little hovercrafts are so easy to make, it doesn’t take long to build some out of different materials (newspaper, cardboard, aluminum foil) or different sizes see which ones drive the straightest, go the fastest, or take the most breath to get moving!
