This is what we learned today:
1. A noun is a person, place, or thing.
Example: Mr. Sajnog (person) walked in to the district office (place) in the morning (thing) to attend a meeting (thing).
2. A pronoun takes the place of the noun.
Example: He (person) walked there (place) to attend it (thing).
3. An adjective describes a noun or pronoun.
Example: The (describes Mr. Sajnog) awesome (describes Mr. Sajnog) Mr. Sajnog walked into the (describes office) district (describes office) office to attend a boring (describes meeting) yet informative (describes meeting) meeting.
4. A verb conveys an action, occurrence, or state of being.
Example: Mrs. Coller walked to Cazenovia. Mrs. Coller likes Justin Bieber because he is cool. (The word IS simply lets us know the state of being of Justin Bieber. Obviously, he is cool.)
5. A absolute sentence puts THREE actions in one sentence.
Example of 3rd Grade sentences: The car went into the parking lot. The car's tires were squealing. The car's paint was gleaming in the sun.
Example: of ONE KICK BUTT academic sentence: Tires squealing, paint gleaming in the sun, the car went in to the parking lot.
We will work more on this tomorrow!
