Alliteration and Shocks!

Today we explored a fabulous short story by author Ellen Conford entitled, "Double Date." In the story, we find out that a lot is going on beneath the tip of the iceberg for these characters!

I loved hearing you read aloud, and your guesses as to what the big shock was going to be!

Our word of the day today is ALLITERATION, which is the repetition of the same sounds at the start of words close together, as from the classic by Dr. Seuss, FOX IN SOCKS, in which we read, "Luke Luck likes lakes."

Tomorrow we have our second vocabulary quiz--and it will be highly creative! It is also picture day at school tomorrow.
