This week we will be studying Spelling words that have the vowel diphthongs: ow & ou.
Our Comprehension skill this week is cause & effect. The cause is why something happens & the effect is what happens as a result.
Our Comprehension strategy that we will be using to develop the above skill is MONITOR/CLARIFY. As we read, we will look for ways to clear up any words, phrases, or concepts that are confusing.
In Grammar, we will be working on distinguishing between abstract & concrete nouns. A noun that names a person, place, or thing is a concrete noun. An abstract noun names an idea, a feeling, or a quality.
In Writing, we will be continue to practice “opinion” writing or stating our opinion in a piece of writing.
All LATE assignments are lowered 1 letter grade. Words that are capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked incorrect.
