As the bell blurted out it’s monotonous ring, I ran into Mod 2, the English classroom. I dumped my bags on the floor beside my assigned seat for the day, I was the daily blogger, so I got to sit in the back! That day we learned many things in grammar, and I will tell you all about that day.
First, we took out our writer’s notebooks and did a grammar warm up. The quick warm up gave us many questions about nouns, adverbs, adjectives, verbs… etc. Then, once we were all done with the problems, Mrs. Nordby went through the six questions and we corrected our mistakes.
Afterwards, we moved onto DGP (Daily Grammar Practice). That week we had this sentence to correct: his plans were bold and fiery and his conceptions glowed with barbaric luster. The whole class helped correct the sentence, so it turned out like this: His plans were bold and fiery, and his conceptions glowed with barbaric luster.
Next, Mrs. Nordby went on to a website called BrainPop.com, there she let us watch two fun videos. One was about adverbs, and they showed us a lot about them. The other video was about adjectives, it taught us by using examples in sentences.
During the last twenty minutes of English class, Mrs. Nordby assigned our homework for the day. We had to do Adjectives and Adverbs 2, the one with twenty-five questions, on NoRedInk.com. We also had to do a lengthy homework sheet that went over many parts of speech. Before she let us start on the paper though, we went through the paper, underlining, circling, and going through directions. At the end of the period, the annoying bell rang out, as many kids scrambled for the door, racing to their next class.
