Remember to make your sentences as complex as possible with all of the punctuation and grammar features we have learned this year.

adjective – describes the noun
noun*- person, please or thing
*Remember, if it is a proper noun it needs a capital letter.

adverb – describes how, where, when the action was done
adverb of manner – tells how the action happened
often takes the suffix –ly
adverb of place – tells where the action happened

Note: To improve your sentence, move the adverb of time to the
beginning of the sentence. After breakfast, I brushed my teeth.

Remember, if you are doing Spellzone words, you need to log onto Spellzone and complete activities there.

Our song for this term is taken from the musical Oliver!
In this scene Oliver is in an orphanage and about to be served dinner/gruel.
Gruel is a thin liquid food of oatmeal boiled in milk or water.
Imagine eating only that 3 times a day! No wonder Oliver and the other orphans are dreaming of other glorious foods.
Today’s goal: Use the wordbank to help you understand the lyrics.
Food Glorious Food
Food Glorious Food – lyrics only
