What a fun day we had today!
1st hour was a little different today because the class had earned a party. They got to watch an episode of the Twilight Zone that I showed the other classes last week. It was a great example of personification and we were able to discuss the plot as they watched.
2nd, 5th & 7th looked at the mood and tone of some song lyrics and then I showed them the official video and we discussed if our mood changed due to the way it was portrayed in the video.
Monday we will be looking at mood and tone in some movie clips and practice backing up the mood and tone with evidence that was used in the video. We will then start looking at mood and tone in some short stories.
No homework this weekend!
We had team day today in the gym where the students made a Harlem Shake video to send in to ChannelOne news. It was really silly and the kids had a great time letting loose and participating.
