We have been working on CONVENTIONS with a particular focus on practicing subordinating conjunctions and comma rules.
Here is the AAAWWUBBIS paragraph we did in class:
When I stepped outside, it was raining. Although I was worried about getting wet, I didn't grab an umbrella. Because I didn't get an umbrella, the rain ran over me. While I continued to walk, I splashed in several puddles. Before I knew it, I was soaking wet. Since I was wet to the bone, I became as cold as ice. As I made my way into the classroom, my teacher commented that I was dripping water on the carpet. Until I dried off, I would have to leave the class and wait in the office. After what seemed like an eternity, I was finally allowed to return to class. If I had been more careful, I wouldn't have missed so much learning.
You are challenged to come up with a "story" using adverb clauses, aka: AAAWWUBBIS. Remember, you are looking for the following words: after, although, as, when, while, until, because, before, if, since.
Try to use a minimum of SIX subordinating conjunctions. If you can use all 10, you are a persistent and motivated student!
Beginning a new school year is exciting, but some children feel nervous and worried. It seems to me that we're off to a great start. Everyone has contributed and worked hard to complete assignments. Let's blog about the start of a new school year. You only need to share your thoughts about ONE of the following (or more if you wish):
Tell us about one or two things we did in class that you especially enjoyed.
Describe something that you had never done before in school; it was a first time experience.
Reflect upon something NEW that you learned so far in room 23.
Tell us what you like about being in a combination class.
Please use proper blog etiquette as discussed in class: Write in complete sentences. Do not use chat abbreviations. Spell to the best of your ability. Always be respectful to others. Never type your full name.
