Ms. Brogan Grade 5 Language Arts

    We are beginning our Literary Essay Unit. In this unit, we will build upon what we have already learned with writing personal and persuasive essays. We will use the organizational structure, boxes and bullets to assist in the writing process. Rather than write about personal experiences, we will be writing about books and short stories we have read, developing theories about character traits and motivations. During this unit, we will write about themes, citing the author's words to support those themes.

    In the area of grammar, students will be identifying different types of sentences as well as determining proper punctuation at the end of a sentence. We will also be routinely focusing on language conventions such as proper punctuation, parts of speech, and writing proper sentences.



    Please complete one activity page per night. The spelling practice pages are intended to allow the students an opportunity to practice their spelling words, along with grammar skills, throughout the week.

    Spelling Test Friday!
