You and your partner have two tasks with analogies.

First, complete this online quiz — work together to brainstorm answers. Can you get them all correct?

Second, try this trickier challenge. How many can you get right in the time given? Try the game at least three times. What’s your best score?

Now, when you work on Wordly Wise Section D, with analogies, think about relationships of words.

Using the Visual Poetry Site

visual poetry tutorial
At this site, which we will be using for small circle stories this week, you use the words you write to make the shape of the thing you have written about.

Go to the Visual Poetry site

When you are done, be sure to SAVE/DOWNLOAD your image from Visual Poetry (You can do a SCREENSHOT by clicking COMMAND-SHIFT-4 on keyboard, and then DRAW a BOX around the image, and it will save to either your desktop or your photos folder).
