Mrs. J. O'Brien
Memorial day is observed by our nation on Monday and school will be closed in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom.
Welcome ELA Students
EIGHT PARTS OF SPEECH: Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, Prepositions, Pronouns, Conjunctions, Interjections. These are the tools we need to build better sentences!
Tonight's work is related to our current activities:
5-1 & 5-2 will be taking a Reading assessment on Thursday, May 31st.
It will ask them to identify the following from a short selection that is a Tall Tale:
- the narrator
- a theme
- words that are used in context (vocabulary)
Here's how to get ready: read a book for 60 min. this weekend, write a full page Journal Entry about the book's narrator, theme and new words
6-1 & 6-2
Write a full page Journal Entry about your activities this weekend that contains at least one of ALL 8 parts of speech.
*A final Review Test on Conventions is scheduled for 6/5/18
