Wednesday- Read and comprehend


  1. Figurative Devices Hunt: There are many examples of similes, alliteration, metaphor and personification. Each person in your group is responsible for picking one device and hunt for it in chapter 10. Record in the comprehension questions

Food for thought: Consider WHY the author is  including this comparison (metaphor or simile). Are they comparing the river to a snake simply to show its movement, or is there a deeper meaning about the water being dangerous or unpredictable? Remember, comparisons should only be made if they further the reader’s understanding of the setting.

  1. Read to the end of chapter 10
