Third Grade News
By Laura Steuben, Exeter-Milligan Third Grade Instructor
The Exeter-Milligan Third Graders got their feet wet by working on a Figurative Language Unit in Language Arts. They were busy as beavers and had tons of fun identifying and interpreting different types of figurative language. Similes, metaphors, idioms, personification, hyperboles, alliteration and onomatopoeias were the focus of the unit. Incorporating them into their own writing will be the next step. Students in the pictures were working together to identify and interpret idioms. They were all on the ball and able to wrap their heads around this sometimes difficult concept.
