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
This week in lit circles we have been reading chapters 3 and 4 then answering questions on them for example chapter 3 question 5 “why didn’t the yellow ring work in the other pools my answer was because the yellow rings bring you to the woods
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?
In Lit circles we had to read the second book of the tale of despereaux then do connector. For example I did the connections between the Tale of Despereaux and ratatowe. What connection would you do to the book that you are reading?

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?
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?
This week we have been reading short fiction stories on greed and jealousy. I enjoyed the story of Ali Baba and the forty thieves.
