R.O.A.R. Announcements

Monday’s Word of the Day…metaphor. Metaphor is a figure of speech that is used to compare 2 things that aren’t alike but do have something in common. Have you heard of ‘Don’t spill the beans?’…It means don’t share a secret. That is an example. Can you think of other examples? 

Tuesday’s Did you know? The phrase A blessing in disguise” means good thing that seems bad at first.

Wednesday’s Thought of the Day: “Nothing you wear is more important than your smile.” 

Do you know what the phrase “it’s in the bag” means? It means you are certain. For example: “I’ll reach my goal. It’s in the bag.”

Thursday’s random act of kindness goes to…Mohamed Alawieh from Mrs. Patterson’s class. Mohamed collected the chairs from the gym after an assembly without anyone telling him. Thank you Mohamed!

Friday’s Joke of the Day: Why did the boy eat his homework? His teacher said it was a piece of cake!
