by Ms. Cho

Storyboard Text

  • Parallelism
  • Alliteration
  • Imagery
  • "She’d tell Dad she hadn’t cashed her paycheck yet, or she’d pretend she’d left it at school and hide it until she could sneak off to the bank. Then she’d pretend she’d lost all the money." (Grammar Pattern: pronoun + aux verb + verb ...)
  • " Mom gave a dramatic sigh of defeat and let her head drop down on the table."(the "d" sound is repeated)
  • "I made some. It didn’t taste like frosting. It was sort of crunchy, because the sugar didn’t dissolve, and it was greasy and left a filmy coat in my mouth. But I ate it all anyway."(The description of the margarine creates a vivid image for the reader)
