We started our week with a lesson about Figurative Language, more specifically, Idioms. The students had fun laughing at all the different idioms that we read about. They also learned how authors use this language to be more descriptive in their writing. We also started our lessons on effective paragraph writing and what a well structured paragraph looks and sounds like. We will continue this work next week focusing on great topic sentences.

The week ended on a high note with the students receiving their Wordly Wise quiz back. I was extremely proud of their studying and test results. As a whole, they showed me how serious their school work is to them...They all did Fantastic!
