Copy the quote and author accurately.
"Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off."
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Remember! This week, we will read the article together, but you will complete the work on your own.
The completed article will be due on Friday.
Pre-read the questions.
Annotate with purpose while we read the article together.
Article of the Week
1. We will read through the related words- definitions and sentences.
2. We will generate a list of any additional words we know with these roots.
Greek and Latin Roots
We will work with adverbs all week and take a quiz on them on Friday.
Today we'll cover:
-a definition (yup, another one)
-questions that adverbs answer
-a practice activity using adverbs
Priscilla and the Wimps
Look for the post it with your name on it to find your new seat. I have a copy of the chart. Any moving of post-its will result in detention.
We need to finish up our parts-of-speech review. In order to do so, let's:
Take out our parts-of-speech notes.
View the prezi/video and complete the exercise.
We read "Priscilla and the Wimps" last week.
Today, we'll watch the spoken-word poem, "To This Day" and then complete a comparison of how the two texts treated the subject, bullying, differently.
Be sure to consider *how* the authors made different choices that impact the message that is sent about bullying.
Keep in mind: these two texts have the same *subject* (bullying) but NOT the same THEME. What is the message, or lesson, about bullying that each text sends? How are they different? Which is better? Why?
Fish! Friday: While you work on this practice exercise, we will be drawing names for "Make Their Day!" Remember, under the new rules, you can make the person's day at any time during the week. But, NO food!!!!!
Adverbs can modify (think of modify as "give more information about") VERBS, ADJECTIVES and other ADVERBS.
To What Extent
Many adverbs end in "ly"
but all do not. See the lists?
Now, let's look at some of the adverbs that can be used to answer each of the questions:
WHERE? - here, there, away, up
WHEN? -how, then, later, soon
HOW? -clearly, easily, quietly, slowly
HOW often/HOW much?- Never, often, always, seldom
TO What Extent?- very, too, so really, almost
