This week we will be studying Spelling words that are contractions-they are contractions with n’t, ‘d, & ‘ve.
Our Comprehension skill this week is compare/contrast; we will be telling how ideas are alike & different.
Our Comprehension strategies this week are analyze/evaluate-we will think about what we’ve read & form an opinion about it.
In Grammar, we will be working on subject/verb agreement. The subject of a sentence and the verb (predicate) must agree in number, tense, & gender. Most verbs in the present tense end with –s when the subject is singular; some verbs, though, end with –es such as those that verbs that end with s, sh, ch, x, or z when they are used with a singular noun. If the subject is plural, we do not add –s or –es to the verb.
Vocabulary Strategy: homophones & homographs (review)
In Writing, we will be working on informative writing; writing an informative paragraph
LATE assignments are lowered 1 letter grade. Words that are capitalized on Spelling tests & Spelling assignments that are NOT proper nouns are marked incorrect.
