As we continue looking at figurative language, listen to the lyrics of Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down. What imagery is present? What is the tone of the song? How is the message being communicated?


Some great examples of literary devices in songs.


Today is Palm Sunday!
On Palm Sunday Christians celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. For many Christian churches, Palm Sunday, often referred to as “Passion Sunday,” marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.
The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by waving palm branchesand covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.

Tomato Seeds By: Maria and Alice

     A few days ago we planted tomato seeds.There are two different ones, one of the packages went to space! How cool is that? We don’t know which package went to space, if it was package “T” or package “V”. Days 0-4 there were 0 germinated plants. Then on day 5 8 plants germinated from the “T” package. On that same day there were 10 plants germinated from the “V” package. The next day there  were 13 “T” seeds and 17 “V” seeds. We will continue to check on how many plants germinated and grew. We will be monitoring the plants over the next few weeks.  


A creative song to help you review the different phases of the moon.
