Alphabet – spelling dictation
I will say the words and I will spell them. Write the letters for each word when I spell the words.
• We need to practice i and e
Grammar – pronouns
1). Personal Pronouns
Pronouns can be:
• Subjects – I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they
• Direct objects – me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them
• Indirect objects – the same as Direct objects
In this context an “object” is a thing or person, an item – a noun.
• Subjects are the topic of the sentence. A subject is something or someone that is doing the action, the verb.
• Example: I drive fast.
• The subject is “I”
• Direct object is the person or thing that the verb is acting on.
• Example: I drive the car fast.
• The direct object is “the car”. I drive it fast.
Finish Indirect Objects next Monday.
• Indirect objects tell us about the person or thing that benefits from the action of the verb.
• Example: I bought a car for her. Or: I bought her a car.
• The Indirect object is “her”. The direct object is “car”.
• I bought a car. I did not buy her.
• She received the benefit of the verb “bought”.
2). Do in questions and negative statements
- Use Do or Does to form questions. “Do” changes with the subject in questions, the verb is in the base form and does not change.
- Use Don’t or Doesn’t to make verbs negative. Again, “Do” changes with the subject, the verb is in the base form.
J and L reviewed and rewrote their summaries from the articles they read last week or their papers. They will write them correctly online Wednesday.
