Summary on what we did in class today
Today in class we intentionally started working on what graphic organisers were. But then we came to a halt. Ms.Lees asked us what a proper sentence is and we all didn't know or wasn't sure about are answer. So for the rest of the class, she taught us what a proper sentence was step by step. we divided are paper into sections to say what each word in sentence was (pro-noun,noun,ad verb,verb,adjective). Each word has its own meaning and its own job in the sentence. For example: an adjective descirbes the action word ( the spotted dog ran slowly) spotted would be your adjective because its describing what kind of dog it is. Then to get more into depth, she showed us a video called "School House Rock." It has many songs describing what each word does in the sentence. I believe its a good way of teaching us what the words mean cause i still have the ad-verb son stuck in my head!
Ms.lees did this lesson today to teach us what a proper sentence is. If we don't know what proper sentences are, we will never get better in a are writing. I never actually knew what each word meant in the sentence until today. sure, i did it in elementary school, but not this much into detail. This lesson really helps with placement of words and tells you what each word means.

******where you place a word in the sentence depends on its definition!****
I ran the meeting today.
I ran home after school.
Ran is spelt the same but it has two different meanings.
