Using the words you have collected in the past, please use 2-3 of them in a 3-sentence mini story. Teach us how to use the colorful words that you have collected. Remember to bold the academic vocabulary words (2nd tier) by surrounding it in asterisks (*) as I had explained in class.
You may comment on another student's "story," but remember, we talked about constructive criticism and positive support, so please be mindful of any comment you submit. I'm looking forward to reading your 3-sentence stories!
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.
