Horray for Friday! The students have worked hard this week on identifying figurative language. Today we started discussing idioms. The students have started to learn some of the more popular idioms, such as “it’s raining cats and dogs.” I think that the students knew a lot of these before today, however did not know they were called idioms. We looked at a song that used a lot of idioms and tried to figure out what artist was saying.
Teachers must post grades on Friday, March 8 so I have been stressing to the students to get any late assignments made up and turned in before then. Teachers have to post by 9am so the cut off for late assignments is really Thursday.
Homework: Bring in your signed permission slip for edmodo as soon as possible! Homework begins next week on Edmodo.
