This week we will be reading more of The Giver and writing more about our thoughts on how the narrative is developing. We will also be starting our studies in grammar and sentence structure to make us better writers. We will start our study with the parts of the sentence and we will move on to the parts of speech. I have always loved the Schoolhouse Rock series of videos, so those will act as an intro to each day's activities when we work with grammar until we have all of the basics down, and then our work will become more intense. We will also begin our study of vocabulary this week. We will have a back of words, and we will do work with various methods in vocabulary assimilation, one of them being the use of Frayer models (you worked with these when you made a definition of your own names).
