We begin our poetry & figurative language unit with a song.
Everything At Once by Lenka is full of smilies. Once we watched a few adaptations to Lenka's song we began learning the song. We watched several versions, practiced reading it chorally ending singing & recording the song as a group using a Karaoke version which we will use for our simile art imovie ( coming soon)!
As we sang and illustrated each line in the song , we also learned more about smilies, writing similes using tangible objects. This was followed with writing a super simile poem for our Super Simile Me posters.
