Limericks – Julia

We have been working on poetry for a few weeks. I am going to share some limericks that we did. A limerick has to have 5 lines, the scheme has to be AABBA. That means the first 2 lines rhyme, the 3rd and 4th lines are shorter and rhyme with each other but not the first and second lines then the 5th line rhymes with the first 2 lines. A limerick is also meant to tell a funny story which makes it interesting and funny.

There was once a man

That was always next to a fan

He went away

To the bay

And and  the man came with a new fan

Literature Circles – Maddy

This week in lit circles we have been working on reading “The tale of Desperaux.” Desperaux is a mouse who is different from all the other mice and is in love with a human princess called Pea. I did a family tree on Desperaux’s family with little pictures and I also did character traits on Desperaux. Have you read “The tale of Desperaux?” If you have who was your favorite character?

Narrative Writing – Mouza

I chose this piece of work because I worked hard on it and I am proud of this piece of work because this is my favorite piece of writing and my goal is to put Adverbs and Adjectives in my story next time. I had to write a story about a captain on his ship staring at the sea but there was a wave coming to the ship so I wrote what’s going to happen next.

Fiction Stories – Amat

This week in reading grade 5, we have been learning about ficton stories. We sometimes have to write about what happens in the story and define some words that we didn’t kno.My favorite was doing a summary on a story book called ”the stonecutter”, it’s interesing how in the story, the stone cutter goes from normal to greedy. Do you guys like people who are greedy?

Short Fiction Stories – Amarachi

This week, in grade 4/5, we have been reading short fiction stories. We read in a group, then did a couple of fun activities. My favourites were the connecter, when you can relate  the story to another experience and the second was writing the moral of the story. I enjoyed this because I had fun reading the stories and it gave me a clearer view of the stories.

What kind of stories do you enjoy reading fiction or non-fiction?
