    Singing Time
    By Rose Fyleman

    I wake in the morning early
    And always, the very first thing,
    I poke out my head and I sit up in bed
    And I sing and I sing and I sing.

    This week’s focus: Chapter 8 Possessive Nouns

    In preparation for Schole support class:

    Be able to define
     POSSESSIVE NOUN p 141,
    and second paragraph on p 142: “A noun in rhe possessive case stands out because of its apostrophe ‘ “
     P 143 chart –when to add an “s” to possessive noun
     CASE- know that word will reappear…it is what “group” the noun is from.
     Rule 1 of Commmas on page 144

    Complete Page 150-151, 152-153

    I’d suggest review the terms each day and do one set of pages each day. Retention is better with daily practice than one day with all the pages completed.


    To be completed this week:


    When you are done the exercises and the quzzes, I suggest having a dance party celebration. You have completed the book! Pat yourself on the back!

    ENRICHMENT – Extra resources for children and families who desire more

    IN the appendix of the book, there is a great selection of poetry. These would be a good place to choose a poem to memorize from. In particular, the “Charge of the Light Brigade” is a poem Tennyson wrote about the war that Florence Nightingale nursed for. (There’s a little extra history connection…isn’t that cool?)


    Please complete these and list the grade on the January submission guide

    Predicate Adjective Quiz*
    Possessive Nouns quiz

    *I neglected to list this last WOL, however, completing this quiz with a gap between that work and the quiz means it will be a good check on the retention for your student.
    I’d recommend doing the quizzes on different days if needed.
