This week, we learned about poetry. I learned that there are many types of literary devices on poetry, such as Alliteration, Personification, Simile and Metaphor. We watched a video about Onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is the sound that represents something. For example, Beep Beep for car sound and Slam for door closing sound.
Also, we made some poetry that are combination of 2 or 3 devices of poetry. I made the poetry using Alliteration and Personification. Alliteration is the type of poetry that have to use word starting with same letter or sound, such as Tally tossed toys to the table behind terrible tiger. Personification have to describe something like people. For example, The sun smiled at me.
I really like this unit and I want to make more poetry and learn more about devices on poetry.
View life from the lens of a 10 year old, and it will bring much humour and joy. That sums up my experience with my grade 5 students at ISS.
