Week 10 : D

Unbelievable!  Only two more weeks until our break!  Boy, how time has flown!!

GRAMMAR: 

Chart L – Work on copying and mastering  Adjective  Chart L – pg. 420

-There is a very handy list on page 443.  It has the 8 parts of speech and the questions to ask to identify each.  Students should have 8 parts of speech memorized.

Work on the following charts – written or verbal:

Chart C – Verbs – Pg. 402

Chart D – Principal parts of verbs:  Irregular Verbs – Pg. 404

Chart G – Model sentences – Pg. 410

Chart K – Verb Anatomy – To Be – Pg. 418

-Make sure to do the dialectic discussion (Analytical Task sheet) of sentences daily  – one for each day – total of three for  first tour students and three to five for 2nd and 3rd tour.  You will find these on pages 170 – 174.

-Editing Exercise is on page 167 and the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling rules can be found on page 168.

-Words of Encouragement (always helpful!) – page 166.

-Our Mother Tongue – Adjective info. and practice begins on page 20 and Predicate Adjectives on page 91.

ENCOURAGEMENT:  Here is an encouragement to use your Quid Et Quo Fold out at home.  If you don’t have the laminate copy, you can find a copy on page  437 or for the adventurous 3rd & 4th tour students – check out page 439. 

The Quid Et Quo is a wonderful tool to use in conjunction with your Trivium Table.  If your student is able to fill these out – they are truly mastering the concepts, even if not doing them by memory, but just by figuring out what the correct answers are. 

LINKS: 

Read Kellog Diagrammer (This is not listed under Week 10, but rather as a general listing) 

Here is a very handy tool.  It is a free on-line sentence diagrammer.  This tool sometimes varies form from the Essentials Guide, but it can also be used to decipher parts of speech.  A nice tool for parents so that you can make up your own sentence or have your child make up their own sentence, and still have a way of checking the parts of speech.   I wouldn’t recommend having the student use it.  It’s mainly a helper for parents as the teacher in the home. 

Directions:

Type in your complete sentence with endmark  punctuation and click “enter” key. 

If you’d like to see the part of speech, just scroll mouse over the word.

Writing:

No new vocabulary this week!  Review all previous weeks.  Check out the Word Dynamo games link for vocabulary!

**********************************************************************************

OPTION  1 -Work on the Story Sequence of the “The Fall of Babylon”.    – Lesson 10 – Student Workbook pages 61 – 70.  Be sure to incorporate the new dress-up:  “Conversation”.   Remember – add in some personality, names, etc.  Make this story your own.

-Lesson 10 – Teacher Guide – pages 29 – 31.

**********************************************************************************

OPTION 2 –   Continue working on Lesson 9 for completion this week.  Please incorporate the new dress-up – “Conversation” into your paper.

***********************************************************************************

OTHER RESOURCES:

-SRN – Student Resource Notebook help – Page 9 – models Story Sequence  AND page 67 & 68 – reinforcement  of Quotation Rules.

-TWSS – Pgs. 27 – 36   AND Conversation pg. 22 #2.

-This will be a three paragraph paper, so devise the best plan for your child.  You may shorten or lengthen each paragraph if desired.  Each student may also change the details of the paper  – characters, names, setting, how things were done, etc., but the story must be about “The Fall of Babylon”.  I would recommend keeping some of the details from each paragraph in the original story, so the paper doesn’t lose focus.  You will only need (see checklist) one of each dress-up for the entire paper (not per paragraph).

-HAPPY WRITING!  This is a fabulous tool – enjoy!
