Hello 6th Grade Families,
    today we went over the grammar worksheet that had students identify pronouns as being: personal, possessive, and indefinite. Afterwards we moved on to simply identifying parts of speech and the functions of words in a sentence. I put up two sentences and we identified the: simple and complete subject, simple and complete predicate, direct and indirect articles, nouns, linking verbs and action verbs, prepositions/prepositional phrases, and finally whether or not a sentence had a direct object (belongs with an action verb) and subject complements: predicate nominative and predicate adjective (belongs with linking verbs). They did a great job!
    After grammar we moved on reading more from wonder. While we read we utilized our inference skills to understand Auggie's perspective. We talked about his struggle and why he suddenly began to cry while his mom read an excerpt from the hobbit.  The part talked about how even though they went through struggles, they saw no change. The class was able to infer that Auggie had this reaction because he went through so many surgeries, but his face would never be "normal" or what we he wanted it to be.
 
best,
mrs. baier
