Continuing the diagraming


Today's class and on...

In order to continue understanding the components of a proper sentence diagram, today you will be working in groups of 2 or 3 to reveiw what we have thus far learned.  Then, you will be selecting a sentence that possesses either an adjective or an adverb and at least one prepostional phrase.  You will write the sentence out, and label each of the parts of the daigram.  Then, you will write a “how-to” on what needs to be done in a step-by-step fashion to properly disgram the sentence.  I will collect this at the end of the period, but if you need more time, I can collect it at the beginning of the period tomorrow.


Ultimately, however, pages 12 and 13 must be completed by tomorrow in the workbook.  


The grammar exam will be held Thursday, September 28th.
