Daily Language:  This week the children will complete a two week study of:

  • Capitalization of proper nouns
  • Comma between day and year
  • Adjectives
  • Apostrophe to show possession
  • Usage "gots"
  • Punctuating a book title
  • End marks
  • Comma between city and state
  • Apostrophe in contractions



Shurley English:  Every day the children continue to classify sentences labeling verbs, subject nouns, adverbs, adjectives, articles, prepositions, objects of the preposition, possessive pronouns, and separating subject from predicate.  At this time we continue with only declarative sentences.  See the list above to know all these parts of speech yourself.
