When Daisy went to school on the first day she was surprised because she saw her best friend named Blanca. Blanca was very excited to tell Daisy that she was going to be in the same class as her and also because they were both getting the nicest teacher in school. Her name was Ms. Lilly. When Daisy and Blanca walked into there classroom they were amazed by the colorful beanbag chairs and the colorful writing on the chalk board. The words were "Welcome to 4th Grade! Ms. Lilly". They were also amazed by the beaded curtains in the reading corner. When she looked at the at the arts and craft table she saw glitter, glue, markers in every color, and a giant pile of rainbow paper. When the whole class saw Ms. Lilly walk into the classroom she knew that her teacher was going to be fun. The assignment given to the class was to write a report on a place that the children went to over the summer. Then they were to bring in a souvier on the place. The popular girl Madison brung in rainboots and everyone was laughing at her. Blanca brang in a picture from when she went to Mexico. Daisy brang in a bracelet that her grandmother gave to her when they went to Lake Michigan. The bracelet was made from emerald and sky blue colored glass and pebbles. Everyone love Daisy's souvier the most.

It Figures ! Fun Figures Of Speech
Author
Marvin Terban
characters
Similes, Metaphors, Onomatopoeia, Alliteration
Title
This book talks about about the different languages of speech. It talks about Similes, Metaphors, Onomatopoeia, Alliteration, Hyperbole, and Personification. Similes are lively comparisons used to enrich descriptions of people, places, things, emotions, and actions. A simile links 2 different elements by comparing one with the other in a way that shows how they are actually alike. A metaphor describes a person, place, thing, feeling, idea, or action. A metaphor is more direct than a simile. The figure of speech that means to form words that sound like sounds is onomatopoeia. Onomatopoeia is Greek for "to make up names". Alliteration is when you put together two or more words that begin with the same sound is called alliteration. Hyperbole comes the Greek name "excess" or anything that goes beyond normal. Personification When you use personification your words create very different definite pictures by suggesting that things look or act like people.
