Peek Into Our Week | Academic Enrichment, Cuyahoga Falls | Week Of 3/19/2018

Line Time:

We will be learning about the parts of speech until the end of the year.  We the learned there are three articles.  They are A, An, The and we learned rules when we use those articles.  “A” goes with consonants, “an” go with vowels, and “the” goes with both consonants and vowels. Moving along we leaned that a pronoun takes the place of a noun and pronouns sometimes make our lives easier.  We went over six pronouns He(boy), she(girl), we( a group we are included), they( a group we are not included), it(we use for non-living things and when we don’t know what gender).  We never call a human an “it” because it is rude.  “You” was the last pronoun we became familiar with.

 

The small blue triangle is the symbol for the article in the Montessori Classroom.
