Quote of the week

What does this quotation mean? What do you think about it?

"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."

Martha Washington

How Fast Can You Say Them?

Tongue twisters are lots of fun! They're great to help you learn to speak clearly, too. Don't just read them; say them out loud. Enjoy!

1) Give papa a cup of proper coffee in a copper coffee cup.

2) There was a young fisher named Fischer

Who fished for a fish in a fissure.

The fish with a grin,

Pulled the fisherman in;

Now they're fishing the fissure for Fischer.

A new challenge...

We have been working on turning telling sentences into showing sentences.

Word Choice can make a difference in your writing. Showing is more powerful than telling. Words that speak to the senses build images. Words that describe sounds, smells, and tastes evoke memories. Flat, dull, boring, or vivid, resonant, and lucid-- how will it be? Where will we find those few well-chosen words to dazzle the mind's eye?

Now I challenge you to turn these telling sentences into good showing ones.
Remeber to work on your own or with a peer as you can work collaboratively in the wiki.
Just click on the link below, follow instructions, have fun and get housepoints!

Telling vs Showing
