My oldest is starting school and my class this year requires me to do more research and planning than blogging. In other words, I'm really busy! So, I will be blogging at least 2 times a week. I hope to cover the beginning and the end of each week. (so.... maybe Mondays and Fridays?) If there's something totally awesome to share, I will do an extra post.
Here are the highlights of this week:
The Nehemiah Project delivered backpacks full of supplies to our students on Thursday! We are so blessed here at the Hills to have a community that cares!
We worked on Types of Sentences and made a handy-dandy flip chart!
Interrogative: asks questions. We made a list of questions words!
Declarative: tells you something. (statement) Declarative sentences end with a 'soft' period.
Exclamatory: Shows strong feeling, ends with an exclamation point.
Imperative: tells someone to do something, it's very important. (command) Imperative sentences end with a 'hard' period.
Here's a video of my wonderful class! They're a little shy, but they'll get over that pretty quick!
After creating our flip chart, we glued it into our notebooks. We don't have a lot of room for posters, so we will keep mini-books of our posters in our notebooks for future reference.
Next we looked at nouns.
It was a l...o...n...g yet successful week. This was the first time since I've been with Hamilton County that we have started school on a Monday. Typically we have started on a Wednesday to ease everyone back into the system. I hope we never start on a Monday again.
I'll see everyone bright and early on Monday morning!
