This week we will be studying Spelling words that have the au, aw, al & o sound.
Our Comprehension skill this week is understanding main idea & details-telling important ideas & details about a topic.
Our Comprehension strategy that we will be using to develop the above skill is summarize or telling the important parts of the text in our own words.
In Grammar, we will be working on pronouns & antecedents. A pronoun takes the place of one or more nouns in a sentence. The noun, called the antecedent, & the pronoun that replaces it, must match in gender and number. There are pronoun worksheets on the website.
Ex. The girl studied for her test. (girl-antecedent)
She studied for her test. (she-pronoun)
The children walked to lunch. (children-antecedent)
They walked to lunch. (they-pronoun)
John put the book in the desk. (book-antecedent)
John put it in the desk. (it-pronoun)
In Writing, we will be continue to practice “opinion” writing or stating our opinion in a piece of writing.
LATE assignments are lowered one letter grade. Words that are capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked incorrect.
