Hi Everyone, We started off yesterday, Friday the 13th, with a review of adjectives and adverbs. Adjectives are used to describe a noun and adverbs are use to provide information about activities through verb or verb phrase.
For most words, add -ly to the end of an adjective to create an adverb. Here’s a table of some common adverbs and how they could be used: We did a practice in class using adverbs and adjectives in the short story Golfer Hits Gopher click here to review it again.
Yesterday we talked about how we would describe the world, using the 5 senses of smell, taste, sight, sound, and touch. It wasn’t easy to do, but you did it!
Then we split up into 7 small groups and selected a map of one of the 7 continents
Each group researched their continent and then presented a description of the continent in terms of the 5 senses. Wonderful work everyone! Your use of various adjectives and imaginative descriptions were great!!
Words of the day
trek (verb) : to walk usually for a long distance Wouldn’t it be an interesting vacation to go trekking all over Europe?
