Language Arts - This week our skill focus was author's purpose and point of view. We continued to discuss PIE and introduced persuasive techniques-Exaggeration, Contradiction, and Misleading text. We watched several commercials and used our knowledge to decide which purpose the writer had in mind to grab audience attention. We did some partner and group activities to identify the different persuasive techniques and author's purpose. Next week, we will continue to work on persuasive techniques.
Sentence Structure-Our skill focus will be run-on sentences.
Flocabulary: No Flocab next week due to short week.
Social Studies: This week in Social Studies our focus was on Oregon Trail and next week we will continue work on Trail of Tears and Gold Rush.
