First of all, I just have to say how AMAZINGLY BLESSED we were to have the wonderful sunny day on the ski hill last Friday. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. Praise God!
We are going to be doing some engaging and unconventional activities this week!
Rappin’ in Grade Four
On Thursday, I am planning to video the grade four students as they rap The Definition Jingle, located in their Language Arts books on page 106. This requires that they work on memorizing this poem so that we can all say it together. Yes, it is long. If they are not ready, please do not fret. I have a feeling this will be one activity that will require an extension as we did not have the opportunity to go over it together last week at all. That being said, here is a copy of the lyrics for your convenience. I will also print off a copy for students to carry around in their agendas.
A Definition Jingle
As house or garden, hoop or swing.
ADJECTIVES tell the kind of noun,
As great, small, pretty, white, or brown.
VERBS tell of something to be done –
To read, write, count, sing, laugh, or run.
How things are done the ADVERBS tell,
As slowly, quickly, ill, or well.
CONJUNCTIONS join the words together,
As men and women, wind or weather.
The PREPOSITION stands before
A noun, as in or through a door.
The INTERJECTION shows surprise
As oh! how pretty; ah! how wise!
The whole are called eight PARTS of SPEECH,
Which reading, writing, speaking teach.
