The hyperbole episode is such an excellent example of how kids, when introduced to concepts through great literature, will naturally play with language and let their imaginations (and silliness) soar. For this episode I had the kids look up hyperbole in the dictionary and thesaurus. We played with the concept by writing a sentence, then we read aloud Swamp Angel. From there, no more instruction was needed, they just knew what they wanted to write….and record. Here are their stories, as written.
listen to our spooky halloween episode and read “Black and Bittern Was Night” by Robert Heidbreder, illustrated by John Martz. and then…..see if you can figure out the meaning to all of the nonsense this Halloween!!! Bah-ha-ha-ha!!!
