Analogies

During our mini lesson today, we reviewed and learned more about analogies. An analogy is a comparison between two things that are usually thought to be different from each other, but that have something in common. Analogies help us to understand something because they are compared to something we already know. It might sound a little confusing, but a few examples will make it easier to understand. Learning analogies can help reading and building vocabulary. Learning tools, like a thesaurus, can be very helpful if you get stuck when trying to use an analogy.

  • Man is to men as goose is to geese.
  • Cat is to mouse as spider is to fly.
  • Knife is to cut as pen is to write.
  • Bird is to fly as fish is to swim.
  • Snake is to reptile as lion is to mammal.
  • Zebra is to stripes as giraffe is to spots.
  • Fish is to gills as human is to lungs.

What Would You Do?

If the desk he’d bought from someone else had fit through the door, Rabbi Noah Muroff wouldn’t have had to take it apart. And if he hadn’t taken it apart, he probably wouldn’t have found a shopping bag inside containing $98,000.

He called up the person who sold him the desk and found out it was her inheritance; she’d forgotten what she did with it. So the money was headed back to its original owner.

This is a good, “What would you do?” moment. Let’s say you found a large amount of money in something you’d just bought from someone – It could be in a baseball glove, a piece of art, a pair of shoes – what comes next?
