ELA Update by Nishant B.

What we have been doing? In the beginning of the year we were learning to identify different types of questions like extension questions or clarifying questions. These were non-fiction reading strategies and choosing bandwagon adjectives. Recently we have been learning how to write persuasive essays and affirming the audience. We have been learning how to include quotes about the topic and when and how to put “yes-buts”, with pro and con sentences. We are writing an essay right now using all these things about the Shrewsbury Public Library. We have been given graphic organizers to use for our introduction and conclusions and different graphic organizers for our body paragraphs. What are we doing next? According to Mrs. Pruett we will be reading books after this.
