We will continue studying chapter 1: The Sentence and Its Parts. This week students will do the following:
- Identify complete subjects and complete predicates (p. 6-7)
- Identify verb phrases (p. 12-13)
Students should have brought home a grammar textbook to be used as an additional study resource. It is also recommended that students keep all of their grammar handouts to be used as a study tool when preparing for tests.
We will continue our unit on personal narrative writing. This week students will continue to use a strategy to focus on a place that is significant to them. They will create lists, based on this concept, that includes as many details as possible (in their writer's notebook). Students will receive a lot of writing time this week to write their stories.
