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.
