The First Week of June

This week we moved again back to W203.

We studied the unit about jobs. We learned about orderlies in the hospital and about past tense verbs.

True story

We read true stories about Clara Barton and Harriet Beecher Stowe. We learned about the beginnings of the American Red Cross and the Civil War.

Writing workshop

We looked at our writing binders and wrote more pieces this week. We used correction clues to edit four mistakes in each piece of writing. We studied how to construct paragraphs and looked at unrelated sentences. The American writing style is very direct.  

We also continued our study of the parts of speech, watching a video on adjectives. Here is a link:

Vocabulary

Last week we studied courageous, curel, slavery, an orderly, to abolish, a novel, certainly, a disagreement, and to get rid of.

We did not have a test because the week was confusing with our move.

Many of these words came from the story about Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Assignment

Use ‘reply’ to type and post ONE of your writing pieces from last week.
