Yes, you've heard the Conjunction Junction song, but what are CLAUSES and PHRASES?
Check out today's notes to find out. I discovered that I could download a PDF of the Prezi, so you can even print it if you want to. I wouldn't do it if I were you, though, unless you made sure to print 4 slides on a page and double sided. That way you won't take up so much paper or ink. The link to the Prezi itself is, as always, on the Grammar page.
Have a great weekend!!
After reading "Cold Equations", these are some questions that you had:
I like that kind of deep thought. Good job.
In class we:
Have a lovely day!
If YOU, like the honey badger, want to INDEPENDENTLY catch yourself up to the class or review last week's information, here it is:
Click on anything in the following list to get the link to the handout or the website.
We continued to work on the Parts of a SENTENCE Prezi. This includes subject, predicate, and clause. You'll learn more later.
Have a great night!
Hello, all you happy people!
I will soon give you a Parts of Speech quiz to determine if you are actually as adept at identifying parts of speech as you seem. Study for it.
In class on Friday, we started the Parts of a Sentence Prezi, which you can find on the GRAMMAR page of this website.
Have a great day!
Yesterday and today we read and reviewed the short story, "The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant". Not only have we looked at the first paragraph to determine parts of speech, we also characterized the two main characters: Sheila and Narrator. In class, you decided that Narrator can be characterized as:
Sheila, on the other hand, is:
We discussed WHY you think that and HOW the author coerced you into thinking such things about his characters without using phrases like, "Sheila is selfish".
Two other pieces of information that may be important to you are:
Okay, Folks. Now that you have learned the parts of speech, we will move on to parts of a sentence. But I have not forgotten that you forget information easily. We will have quizzes next week to see if you can remember your parts of speech.
Also next week, you can look forward to a pre-assessment. This test will take one period and will be graded for my use only, not for the grade book. It has been designed after the Regents exam, so get ready.
TODAY in class was picture day. I hope you enjoyed the break from class. I'll see you next week.
Today we began to look at the eight parts of speech. Don't worry. We will use these words so much in the following year that you will not forget them again. (Hehee!)

Have a great day!
As you know, this is my blog. I will attempt to write daily updates here to keep you all informed of notes, study tips, homework assignments, etc.
If YOU have questions for me or need to get a hold of me for some reason, feel free to come to this very page and click on the pink word, "COMMENTS", above. When you do so, please be sure to give me your name and your question/comment. Since this website is hooked to my phone, I may actually hear it and leave you a reply. However, don't rely me answering you immediately because I try to have a life outside of school, so I may be doing something other than listening for my phone to notify me of a new email.
At the beginning of this week, you learned the rules for MRS. COLLER'S WORLD, which are available on this website's home page.
On Thursday, the class took a quiz, so you should be able to see your grade on mygradebook.com. If not, pick up your quiz paper from the bin by my classroom door.
Today we began to take notes on what I will teach you this year. I am excited for a wonderful year, so I hope you are, too!
Have a great weekend.
