Some brainstorming... and I will fill in what we do as we do it.
My notes for past versions of the Grade 4 "Personal Narratives & Advanced Punctuation" and "Grammar & Sentence Analysis" main lesson blocks:
write dragon short stories to practice advanced punctuation
write dragon poetry;
dragons are a perfect fit for metaphor, simile, onomatopoeia!
sprinkle dye wool felt with Kool-Aid powder,
sew dragon felt finger puppets,
then write a little scene with dialogue for them to speak
choose sentences to symbolize from books about dragons
choose examples for sentence analysis from books about dragons
do a dragon drawing or painting,
then write a sentence about the artwork and symbolize or analyze it
do the Haunted House of Speech with dragons!
