iSHAMPOO – A Figurative Language Acronym

School Collaboration:

Read, share, enjoy the Book Week books with your class.

Keep your eye out for examples of figurative language:

As you find examples of these, write them as a quote on coloured pieces of paper.

EG.

Alliteration example

I will set up a display in the library.

Let’s see how many we can collect.

National Simultaneous Storytime

National Simultaneous Storytime is celebrated each year, during National Library and Information Week.

This year ‘The Brothers Quibble’ written by Aaron Blabey is the selected text. We now have one copy of this book in our library, and other books by this author. In order for everyone to share this book simultaneously I have attached a couple of videos of the book.

Please let students know that there will be some art activities related to this book on offer in the library at first lunch.

There are lots of suggested activities on the website:
https://www.alia.org.au/nss

Here’s a version read by a Kingston Librarian, with words visible if you would like to explore the text more.

Other resources:

Idjhil, Helen Bell – A story about a child removed from his people/ country. We have a copy in our library.

Archie Roach – Took the Children Away – Song related to Stolen Generation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLXzKYP1uCw&feature=youtu.be

The Rabbits, Shaun Tan – A metaphorical story related to colonisation.

Noel Pearson’s Eulogy at Gough Whitlam’s funeral would be a great literary challenge for year 6/7 students. Although lots of complex language is used, it is very powerful and gives a good summary of more recent Aboriginal history through one man’s perspective.

Mabo Website – Lots of resources – Middle Years
