Please note that I plan to alternate posts on this blog with posts on my reading blog (www.elsapla.wordpress.com). Check out my reading recommendations!
I trust you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I know I did! Now it's time to get back to cookin' with words.
I'm happy to see that you are understanding the concept of nouns (the names we give to all the stuff in the universe), and that you are learning to identify and utilize them. (By the way, why do you think it's important to learn to identify the parts of speech? More on that on my next post.) We still need to spend a little more time on nouns, but we must also start writing yummy paragraphs.
You have two tasks for the next two weeks:
1- Study the following spelling guidelines, and practice changing singular nouns to their plural forms.
2- Study the attached documents, and write a paragraph to the following prompt:
Your state is on the path of a powerful storm. Your family has been ordered to leave their home and rush to a storm shelter. You are allowed to take only one personal belonging. What will you choose and why?
Your revision objective: add precise nouns.
Talk to you soon,
My favorite after school snack is tea and toast.
Try these two delectable versions of the pbj:
1- Nutty wheat bread, crunchy peanut butter, and apricot preserves.
2- Country white bread (one thick slice), creamy peanut butter, banana slices, and hot fudge. (Eat with fork and knife.)
