English Class fifth graders took a little lighter approach to English studies this Thursday when they made rebus Valentines. A rebus is a  pictogram puzzle where pictures and sometimes additional letters represent words. The fifth graders had fun creating Valentine messages.

Fifth grader Alisa remembered all of a sudden that a female sheep is a”ewe” so she drew her rebus Valentine message to incorporate that fact.

Fifth grader Tara had completed her rebus message when it dawned on her that a drawing of a housefly would have represented the word “fly” in her message, I’d fly the around the world for you. Many wonderful rebus messages were created in a short amount of time.
