Welcome back... January 4, 2011


So, we're back from winter break... sigh... but no worries, at least we can look forward to english! So today in class Mrs. Smith introduced a new activity, sentences! 
We are taking apart sentences piece by piece, learning the components. Since we didn't have school yesterday (Monday) we completed the Monday and Tuesday activities using the sentence... their team will practice after school. Monday's activity tested our ability to name the parts of speech: nouns, verbs, conjunctions, etc. Tuesday's activity went over sentence parts and phrases: subjects, verbs,complements, etc. 
Everything you need to know is in the purple packet Mrs. Smith handed to us.  
Mrs. Smith also announced we will be doing more CSAP practice. Followed by a new packet, "The Waxed Generation". We have to read the story, answer questions, write short responses, then write an in depth essay.  I will write the main idea of the essay question at the end of this post. We worked on this for the rest of the class period. The packet and essay are due Thursday at the end of class. Have a great week back!
