Today the students had the opportunity to identify types of phrases and clauses from a literary text. In doing so, they also had to understand why the author chose to use that written element. This was originally scheduled for yesterday’s class, however time did not allow us to get to it.
After the Sponge (warm up) activity, the students began class with a game of charades. They had to guess the point or “object” of each student’s movements. Upon guessing, this served as a segue to our review discussion of direct objects, indirect objects, and objects of the preposition. Since we hit direct objects and objects of the preposition yesterday, we devoted more time to indirect objects (which are always a little tricky for students). The students practiced by working in groups to find the different types of objects.
