Hink Pinks-6th period only

Hink pinks are riddles that have two rhyming words in the answer. Below are word pairs. You must find another word for each word in the pair and the resulting new pair must rhyme. Go to your blog and post your answers!

Example: A naughty father
Answer: A bad dad

1.) A sushi plate

2.) A fast elevator (in England)

3.) An antelope drink

4.) A warm bed

5.) A lawful bird

6.) An Orca prison (Google what an Orca is if you don't know)

7.) A salamander shoe

8.) A sham cobra

9.) A depressed boy

10.) A large stick

For the next two, I want you to come up with your own. We will all visit your blog and see if we can figure them out by leaving comments with our guesses! (Hint: Think of two words that rhyme FIRST, and then come up with the alternate descriptions...it seems to be easier that way).

Today is FREE FRIDAY! Therefore, I am letting you write about whatever you choose. The only rules are it must be school appropriate, so no violence, cursing, or putting other people down. Also, I will specifically be grading you for capitalization (especially when you are referring to yourself as "I"). I am also looking for run-ons and fragments. You should avoid these altogether! Lastly, you must write at least five complete sentences.

So, start thinking about what you would like to write about. It can be anything...your weekend plans, your life plans, the car you want to buy, the boy you like, the girl you dislike, etc...

YOU CHOOSE...but choose WISELY!
