As you know, we have been studying adjectives this week. To complete this project, we brainstormed adjectives to describe our favorite food. Then we created a life-sized Venn diagram using hula hoops and compared our favorite foods. After we took a picture of our Venn diagrams, we explained the process and included sentences using comparative adjectives. Enjoy!

One of the things we've been working on in class 2-B is grammar. Grammar includes: nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs.
A noun is a person, place, or thing.
An adjective is a describing word.
A verb is an action word.
An adverb is also a describing word, but don't mix it up with an adjective.
Here's a trick to help you remember the difference between and adjective and an adverb. An adjective works with a noun and an adverb works with a verb.
Another three things we learned about are: simile, onomatopoeia,and alliteration.
Similes are comparing words. Here’s an example: The slamming door is as loud as thunder.
Onomatopoeia are sounds we think\hear animals say. Here’s an example:The duck said QUACK!
Alliterations are sentences that start with the same letter or sound. Here’s an example: Merry Marisa Makes Mad Mice.
This is what we've been learning in class 2-B so far. I don't know my friends' opinions, but I think it's fun. I hope to learn A LOT more grammar.
I am headed back to my roots this year. I'll be teaching 4th grade again. Of my 18 years in the classroom, 12 of them have been have been in 4th grade. Now I'm back.
