Word Study Update

In addition to our word sort work, we have started to work on grammar skills. The students are working to identify what makes a sentence a sentence. It must have a subject, a predicate, and must communicate a complete thought. We are also reviewing the different types of sentences: statement, command, question, and exclamation. Identifying simple subjects and simple predicates is also part of our work.We will continue with this work throughout the year and ensure that the students have a solid grammatical foundation.
