Avoiding Run-On Sentences and Analyzing Poetry


Grammar Lesson: Avoiding Run-On Sentences  What exactly is a run-on sentence and how can you put a stop to them? Let's watch as our friends Tim and Moby from BrainPop explain how. (Remember you can access BrainPop through the Apps section of your Google Drive.)  
  
Poetry Marking: "On Turning 10" (Continued)  Today we will continue to explore and 'mark up' the poem “On Turning 10." You can still find the activity in your Language Arts folders and a link to it is here. You will be working in small groups today, however each of you should also be prepared to share your ideas with the whole-class.  

Homework  1.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and make a digital Reading Log entry. (2.) Tomorrow is Friday! We have several assignments from the week that need to be completed and "turned in" tomorrow Friday, September 12, including: Making Inferences - 'Dear Future' and Text Marking - 'On Turning 10".
