Be sure to use comparatives and superlatives. And use transitional words such as “similarly” and “also” to say how they are alike. And “however” and “on the other hand” to say how they are different.

GET BETTER SOON…

getwell_heard

Hi Kids! I hope you get better soon.
Just not to get bored at home, I want to tell you what we are working on at school.
We are working on visualizing what we read. (Cornerstone pg 212) We played the game on describing a biome without saying what it is and your partner has to guess! We had lots of fun!
After that, We made a T-chart to compare and contrast two biomes. Read the explanation on Page 213. You can make your own chart comparing and contrasting the desert and grassland biomes. See the example!
At the end, we wrote a draft copy of a comparing and contrasting writing. See page 216/217. We will work on an expository writing. You will have to compare and contrast two biomes. Read the examples in the book and follow the steps.
There is a very nice writing of a girl called Gabriella Marquez. Have a look!
Remember! First you can make a VENN DIAGRAM and then write your draft copy.
Here is some help for you!
Paragraph 1: Similarities
Paragraph 2: Differences Biome 1
Paragraph 3: Differences Biome 2.
Best of luck! I am eager to read your writing!!!
Get better cause we miss you a lot!

Let´s play: Visualizing Our beautiful World with your family

In this unit we have studied the different biomes and their characteristics. We have compared and contrasted the biomes and also identified the animals that live there.
We have learnt to VISUALIZE the biomes out of a description read by someone else. We enjoyed that experience a lot! Now it´s your turn to visualize them all.
Here´s an audio book with pictures we chose from the web and descriptions we wrote in groups on the eight biomes.
Close your eyes and enjoy the fantastic world of visualizing!!!!
