Here are the songs that we used in class to look for author's purpose and main idea.
Think about some of the similarities and differences that each of these four songs have. If you would like extra credit, write me a paragraph comparing and contrasting any two of the songs. I can't wait to see what you come up with! :)
Also, don't forget to be on the lookout for figurative language :) :) :)

We watched a video clip and saw some pictures of an abandoned theme park in Japan today. We used this as a writing prompt for the students to use their imaginations and write anything they would like about an abandoned theme park. The stories that they class wrote were fun to read. What a great bunch of imaginations!!! :) Here is the photo we used for our writing prompt: CLICK HERE.
