The grade 7/8s have some homework for this weekend if it wasn't finished. First, they have some Christmas similes and metaphors to write. Second, they started a descriptive writing, describing a fantasy room. Their writing must be at least 3/4 of a page, have one metaphor or simile included and 7-10 sensory words (which they are to underline). They were given a sheet with example sensory words to help them out. The room can be as imaginative and creative as they want!
Keep warm this weekend! :)
