Things I learned in English

By Kelly Janssens

I learn every few weeks, new caesar's english words

In English we have done 8 units, so that means that I have learned 40 new words or roots. The roots have showed many more words than just the one from the singular words. It gives me a to grow my learning. Can't believe I learned that many words in just in that 45 minute time every few weeks.

I have also learned about writing a short story

In December we worked on writing a short story, we looked at the structure all the way through other authors short stories so we could get ideas. my story was about a gymnast named May who moved to Chicago. Everybody's story was different so we all learned something even if it wasn't the same.

Signpost Project

I found out to think that the signpost project was very fun. I though that I knew everything about a signpost, but it turns out it was almost the opposite, I knew almost nothing. So when I specify which signpost is which I don't think that a words of a wiser is a contrast and contradiction. I finally can read and spot a signpost without the help of someone else or thinking to hard about it.

Read Alouds and book grups

Through read alouds and book groups, I have been exposed to books that I know for sure would read unless someone told me too. Although I have really been read or read myself some really horrible ones, I have found ones that show me a bridge to a whole new genre or subject. But there are always those books that i have read on my own time that are really good. Some are my favorites, read alouds and book groups introduce me to new books that I wouldn't have read before.
