Background photo by t.shigesa Read "Grammar and Usage" on p 61. Complete number 1 on p 59 ...And Although the Little Mermaid Sacrificed Everything to Win the Love of the Prince, the Prince (Alas) Decided to Wed Another The Little Mermaid Activity 1.18 As we read the poem, underline the text of things that you don't remember from the story. The poem is based on the tale by Hans Christian Anderson rather than the Disney movie. He Might Have Liked Me Better With My Tail The Mermaid Speaks Read both "Grammar and Usage" on p 60. What do we know about the tale of Ariel and/or Disney's "The Little Mermaid"? Create a list of six common interjections in the "My Notes" section. Use a comma after a mild interjection and an exclamation point after one that expresses a stronger emotion. The parentheses around the interjection in the title is not the typical punctuation. When you are writing, interjections should only be used in dialogue. Interjections are commonly used in speech. travail
pined Copy the following words and mark them with Q, H, or T: travail: pain, anguish or suffering resulting from mental or physical hardship.
relinquished: to let go; release
pined: to yearn deeply; suffer with longing; long painfully In looking through the poem and essay, what do you think they mean? As you can see in the poem, the first word in each line begins with a capital letter. This is only allowed in poetry. You can also see that each stanza has four lines, which is called a quatrain. At the end of each line of the poem put the letter of the rhyme scheme. If you need to look back at Activity 1.5 on p 10 to help you with this. These transitions (conjunctive adverbs) are use after a semicolon: however, indeed, nevertheless, in fact, therefore, as a result. Examples of Combined Sentences:
I wanted to win the love of the prince; therefore, I traded in my voice to live happily ever after.

I thought a better life awaited me on the land; all I needed was two legs and the prince. With your shoulder partner read the essay with the odd numbered partner reading the odd numbered paragraphs, and the even numbered partner reading the even numbered paragraphs. As you read mark the text for the following features:
• an introductory hook
• the thesis statement
• topic sentences in supporting paragraphs
• supporting details (reasons,examples, facts)
• conclusion with commentary that connects back to the thesis Go back through both the poem and the essay and mark them for descriptive language, including vivid verbs, exact nouns, vivid adjectives, lively adverbs, sensory language, and similes. On p 59 let's create a checklist of the elements of an effective expository essay.
