5-A-Day Homework Hints
Monday
#1 Hyperboles - Is a huge exaggeration - "It is so cold that I turned into an ice cube." is a hyperbole. "It is so cold that I had to wear two pair of socks." is not
#2 Personification - A figure of speech that gives human characteristics to non-human things. EX. The tree branches grabbed her hair as she ran by. The tree branches don't really have hands to "grab" her hair.
#3 Students should try to guess the meaning of the word by the clues given in the sentences.

Tuesday

Both intensive and reflexive pronouns must have "self" in the word ex. myself, himself, yourself
