Writing: This week, we are continuing our unit on Opinion writing! Students will finish up their initial opinion piece so that it can be graded for their language arts assessment grade for this quarter. We are also going to begin work on new shorter opinion pieces, that focus more on moving from personal opinions to persuasive opinions.
Language Arts: This week, we are reviewing prepositional phrases, as well as several other language arts concepts from this quarter. Students will complete a language arts activity identifying strong word choice, punctuation for effect, adjectives in order, and prepositional phrases in order to practice for a classwork grade. Students will be expected to incorporate this skill into their writing on a regular basis in order to practice using them as well.
Standards for this Week:
4RI8: Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text.
4W1: Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons.
4L1e: Form and use prepositional phrases.
