    • Housekeeping
      Welcome Sheet/First Day Handouts
      Classmate’s ring
    • Parts of Speech Review – Part 1
      Nouns, Verbs, Adverbs, and Adjectives
    • Nouns
      Nouns are words that name people, places, or things.
      Ex: students, classroom, computer
      Write down three nouns that you can find in this room
      Class Ex: dictionary, blackboard, fan, picture
    • Verbs
      Verbs are words that express an action*
      Ex: talk, walk, teach, listen
      What are three more action words that describe what we do or could do in the classroom?
      Class Ex: have, eat, sit, write
      *Some verbs express “states of being” rather than actions: am, was, appears, seems, etc.
    • Basic Sentences
      A simple sentence has a noun part (subject) and a verb part (predicate).
      Ex: The teachertalks.
      Write a simple sentence right now.
      Ex: Iam going to park
      I live in Vancouver
      Michele walks back and forth
      The students are listening.
    • More Interesting Sentences
      We can add some words to our basic sentence to tell more about the teacher and how he/she talks.
      Ex: The crazy teacher talks loudly.
    • Adjectives
      Adjectives give more (or “add”) information about nouns.
      Ex: The crazy teacher talks loudly.
      What are some other adjectives that we could use instead of crazy?
      Class Ex: smart, enthusiastic, strict, fantastic, energetic, talkative, hard, intelligent, passionate
    • Adverbs
      Adverbs give (“add”) more information about verbs.
      Ex: The crazy teacher talks loudly.
      What other adverbs could we use instead of loudly?
      Class Ex: softly, firmly,. quickly, funnily, humourously, seriously, sadly,
    • Add some adjectives and adverbs to the sentence you wrote earlier.
      Adverbs (Cont’d.)
    • Student Sentences
      Michele walks funnily back and forth when she teaches. (strangely, weirdly, . . .)
      The teacher is very active and serious.
      The smart student plays happily.
      I’m currently writing a short note.
      The smart students listened enthusiastically.

      Complete the statements.
      An important difference between writing and talking is that in writing we absolutely must ____________ any statement we make.
      A _______________ is made up of a point (topic sentence) and a collection of specifics (reasons and details) that support the point.
    • Activity: Paragraph on the best or worst ______________.
      Review my feedback on your outline and follow my instructions to continue your work on the topic.
