Conjunction Junction...

I am getting my feet wet in 5th grade now... phew!

This week, I will teach a mini-lesson about conjunctions and using commas in a series and with conjunctions. I have NEVER had a Smartboard until this year (yes, I know... you can breathe now...)!

I made my first attempt to create 2 Smartboard lessons: One about Conjunctions & one about Comma Usage. You are more than welcome to use them if you wish (see below)


First, I will introduce conjunctions with the School House rock video: Schoolhouse Rock 

Then, my Smartboard lesson/practice & ticket out the door. (above)

Later in the week, I will introduce the use of a comma with this video: Comma Story

Then, use my Smartboard lesson/practice & ticket out the door. (above)

I just hope it goes well:) We are also finding a lot of textual evidence with our novel, Steal Away Home.

  4. I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
