Figurative Language

Similes, metaphors and personifications are some examples of figurative language which liven up your writing and create a picture in the reader's mind. This video will help you remember them so that you can start using these figures of speech in your future pieces of writing. Hope you enjoy it!

Hello Miss Ale,
It was a very good idea and a very good song, something that woke me up then of the trip to Uruguay. It really helped me to understand what metaphore and similes are. I did not watch only one video, I watched five, yes really!. If you could post other video like this one that teaches as and we have fun watching them. When I started to here it I recognized it was the song of Mary Poppins because my sister love that movie, but I am to big for it. It really teaches you a lesson.
See you in class!
Keep on Posting!
See you tomorrow and tell you about the trip to Uruguay!

Hello Miss Ale
I just arrived to day from the Uruguay gira it was great, and I decided to chek the blog to see what new thing were on it. ajajjaja, the song was JUST funny! It was with the melody of supercalifragilisticquespialidouses (if you write it like that) quite a word. Ill keep on blogging, Im anxious to see the other one, cause most your posts are fun.
See you tomorow at school!!!!

Hi Miss Ale,
I loved the video, it was excekkebt, and the examples that it gave were easily understandable to all of us, like I'm taller than a tree. I loved the song that there was in the video, Supercallifragilisticexpiallidotious, which we practiced last year.
See you,

Hi Miss Ale,
Very good song and very useful for as to rehearse what we have learnt this last days in your language class. I liked a lot the video and I like a lot the rythim of the song. I am very enthusiastic in learning what is a hyberbole. I liked a lot this theme and although I was very nervous with the two mysterious visitors, I enjoyed too much todays class. Thank you for posting this kind of things that are funny and useful, I like them a lot.
See you tomorrow

Hello Miss Ale:

I think this song is great and you can learn a lot from them. You can learn, for example, what is a similie or a metaphor or a personification. Very good post. See you in class!!!

Hello Miss Ale!
The video was very nice and funny. I liked the idea of not always post a paragraph or an activity, a video is another option, and the good thing is taht there are million and billion and trillions of videos. Is one of the things that people of now a days do. They hear songs in youtube and they see the video clip of the song.
The music was from the song of supercalifragilisticuespialidoso (I'm not sure if I wrote it well because it is a very complicated and long word.) I love this song. I like the idea of a word that has approximately 30 words and that there can be a song. I think that the song makes it easier to say and pronounce the word. The lyrics of the song are good for a test. You memorize the song and when you are in the test you sing it and it can help you.jaja
Keep on blogging a lot!
Bye

Hi miss ale
I think that is a great idea to make a video of this tipe of things in schoool because if teachers give us pages and pages and pages (not like you because we do presentations and that tipes of things)it is going to be really boring and children are not going to learn and if they do they will hate that thing...
lots of love...
