What is with the silence, Brooke? I am not quite sure. Spring break, a two year old, and STAAR approaching must have gotten to me. I was doing such a good job posting, but then, it just stopped.
Like I mentioned above, we are getting closer and closer to our STAAR test. For that reason, it is important that we take a look back at a few of the things we have learned this year. Today's blog post is all about figurative language. What is figurative language? Why is figurative language important?
I love to read essays that have a little bit of figurative language in them because it features something that is out of the ordinary. A little bit of someone's personality shines through an essay that includes figurative language.
Figurative language comes in many forms, and ups the ante of your essay. We will be practicing figurative language next week, but for extra credit, you can share a Google Doc with me using at least 5 different types of figurative language!
