Week 5

Hello Parents,

Password for next week: Name the 5 interrogative pronouns-
who, whom, whose, which, what
(Not "where" b/c that's an adverb -Thanks Jena!)

For Essentials:

Have fun this week reviewing charts A-F. Get dice out like class, give tokens or pennies/dimes/nickels for each correct answer, or let your student be the teacher and ask the questions.

For IEW:

We will continue with Unit III: Narratives Stories. You have options to scale up or down (1 or 3 paragraphs) with Genghis Khan pg.131 or continue working on The Sword in the Stone.

Everyone can add in some of our old and new stylistic techniques. This is a lot to add but if students practice each week then it will eventually become their natural way of writing. Several people asked question about how many stylistic techniques per paragraph. Just found some rules:
1) Minimum rule for dress-ups and sentence openers --1 of each per paragraph (only ones we covered)
2). Minimum rule for decorations-- 1 different decoration per paragraph, 4 per story max

*Remember to look at the 2013-2014 Schedule to help you focus on the right unit, source text, page, and stylistic technique for each week.

Ya'll are wonderful! Thanks for your help in class. Have a great week.

Blessings, Michelle
