Student Instructions

Onomatopoeia (sound effect of an action) or Interjection (human communication)?

Suggested Time to Complete: 20-30 mins In part 1 of this activity: You will show what you know about how sound effects (onomatopoeia) are not the same as sounds that humans make with their voice to communicate emotions (e.g. "Wow!"). In part 2 of this activity: You will create 2 awesome sentences that could start two exciting different stories. You will learn about using 3 ingredients in your sentence: - a sound effect! (before your sentence) - a sentence that uses: - past tense verbs (this will make it clear it just happened now) - the word AND to connect two MOVEMENTS happening in your sentence (this is called SENTENCE FLUENCY) - words to show WHERE we are in the story ("my bedroom window" shows that we are at a home, "to the garden below" shows we are on the second floor or above)
