• Grammar      

         Grammar is the study of how words and their component parts combine to form sentences.  This year your child will have a Grammar Practice Book.  The majority of this book will be completed in class.  However, the completed pages will be sent home on a reqular basis.  If you look on the bottom of each completed page there is an activity you and your child can complete at home.

         After each grammar concept is taught to your child, he/she will be encouraged and expected to use it when completing classwork and homework assignments.

         Below is a list of grammar concepts your child will be learning and tested on:

         ~Sentence concepts: statements, questions, exclamations, commands
