A Glimpse into Merriman's Menagerie
This Week's Fun...
Along with fairy tales, we have work on pronouns this week. We discussed the importance of pronouns as they take the place of nouns. We learned that we use them all the time and that a balance of nouns and pronouns are necessary. We tried talking without pronouns and found this to be extremely challenging. We have learned about singular and plural pronouns, subject and object pronouns (SO7...7 subject pronouns [I, he, she, you, it, we, they] and 7 object pronouns that match [me, him, her, you, it, us, them]). We also worked on possessive pronouns.
Next week we will be focusing on subject/predicate and types of sentences.
We are also going to start a research project on animals. Students will choose an animal from another continent and conduct a short research project on it. They will then present their information to the class. Students will be given more specific instructions next week. Also on Monday, we will have our end of third grade ELA assessment. This will be a short assessment that sees how well students can analyze a short fiction story and a short nonfiction piece.
We will also be looking at different types of poetry next week.
We are also continuing our journey through cursive.
