Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 in Brief

Today we reviewed direct ojects from yesterday and then talked about indirect objects.  We first watched a quick Brain Pop video on direct and indirect objects.  We then took notes on both types of objects before putting what was learned into practice on page 82 of the Grammar for Writing work book (this is book in the classroom).  The Advanced Content class did only the odd numbers, while the other classes did all of the odd numbered sentences except for #3.  Everyone worked in their Source Books to identify the  the subjects, the verb/predicates, the direct objects, and indirect objects.

HOMEWORK: All- (Almost like yesterday) write 5 sentences that have SVO with direct and indirect objects. 2nd Period- Complete the homework but do 7 sentences instead of 5.

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 Recap

After the wonderful, 3-day Labor Day weekend we did a review of the basic sentence parts: subjects and verbs/predicates.  We then took a 10-question quiz on complete subjects and predicates as well as abstract nouns.  Finally, the lesson wrapped up with notes, discussion, and practice identifying direct objects.

HOMEWORK: AC: Write a 5-sentence story using SVO (Subject/Verb/(Direct) Object).  Highlight the sentence parts (Subject/Verb/(Direct) Object) in different colors.  2nd, 6th, and 7th: Write 5 sentences that use  SVO (Subject/Verb/(Direct) Object).  Identify each sentence part (Subject/Verb/(Direct) Object).
