Today we started my new Jonathan London Author Study. The kids are loving it already! We focused on the literary device of Onomatopoeia today. I wrote a poem to help the students remember what this crazy long word means. We also made Onomatopoeia mini books. Today we read Froggy’s Day with Dad. We searched for nouns, verbs, and adjectives around the room from the story and recorded them on a recording page. We also wrote about our own connections with the story (forgot to take pics of this one!). As we read we searched for evidence of the Author’s Fingerprints and referred to our author study anchor chart for this one. We definitely found personfication, frog characters, onomatopoeia, and the repeated phrase in today’s Froggy book! Here are some pics of our fun today:
I’ve included a freebie for you…my Onomatopoeia poem (which is not in the unit…it was a spur of the moment idea today!) as well as a copy of the Onomatopoeia Mini book (that is in the Froggy) unit. Thanks to the Bubbly Blonde for the presh border…and thanks to Kimberly Geswein and Cupcake for the adorable fonts!
