Lesson Plans
1. Discuss the terms – point of view and personification. Point out that this book is told from the point of view of the meteor, as if it had feelings (like a person) and is telling its story.
2. Make a mini-book include information and pictures about meteorites,comets and asteroids, after reading the book.

Exclamation Mark – Personification

This week, I’m reading Exclamation Mark by Amy Rosenthal, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld.

We talked briefly about personification, where human qualities are given to animals or objects.

Each week I have different bookmarks.  This week the bookmark was from Tom Lichtenheld’s website, printed on yellow paper, of course.
