As you may notice, tonight's weekly ELA HW packet does not include a writing component.
Instead students are asked to complete VV. 2 Formatting Street Addresses and JJ Pronouns on language arts IXL.
Students should have many components of JJ Pronouns completed from previous in-class work time. I asked the students to please let me know if they have forgotten their usernames and passwords and I can get them to them tomorrow in class. Additionally, if computer access at home is unavailable please let me know as well!
Unit 5 for Grammar includes 7 topics within Pronouns.
-Using I and Me
-Relative Pronouns and Relative Adverbs
-Contractions with Pronouns
To address this information in chunks we have been studying the first 4 topics and will be testing on Monday, December 16th. Both 4G and 4T will have their study guides over the weekend to prepare!
Monday 12/9 and Wednesday 12/11 4G review days in class
Tuesday 12/10 and Thursday 12/12 4T review days in class
As always please let me know if there are any questions!
We hope you had a great weekend!
Here are the spelling words this week.
To increase difficulty as I have seen students continue to do quite well in spelling, the test will be now out of 24 points and there will only be opportunities for 2 points over. Students have heard of this change and I will reiterate this tomorrow! So this weeks test will cover 1-24 with bonus opportunities for #'s 25 and 26. (Test Fri. Dec. 13th)
Happy spelling studying this week,
Monday December 2nd- Friday December 6th:
