This week we will:
*Learn what pronouns are and why we use them
*Discuss pronouns and their antecedents
*Practice proofreading text and spotting errors with pronouns


We add information and practice sheets to our Interactive Notebooks regularly. The practice sheets provide more in-depth information about what we're covering in class than the simple skill name I post here.  It is important that your child carry his/her notebook home each day to review the lessons and information we cover in class.
 **I try my best to keep this page current and up-to-date on the skills we cover in class. However, there are things that arise that might keep me from getting this site updated at the start of each new week. Please check your child's grammar notebook daily to see what we are covering in class. That is your greatest source of information about the skills we cover because the practice sheets we complete and glue in the notebook have more in-depth information about the skills.
