In the area of grammar, we will be reviewing verbs, verbs with singular and plural nouns, verbs for present, past, and future, and the verbs am, is, are, was, and were. In the area of comprehension we will be reviewing author's purpose, drawing conclusions, comparing and contrasting, sequencing events of a story, and facts and opinions. There are no vocabulary words this week.
