On Monday we will review common, proper, abstract and concrete nouns. You will have a test on nouns on Friday, but I will not be reviewing every day this week. Please make sure you are studying the types of nouns on your own to prepare for your test. You use use your guided notes from last week as well as the practice exercises to prepare.

On Monday we will review our parts of speech test from last week. I noticed that our biggest area of weaknesses are pronouns and adverbs. Because of this, we will do a quick review of nouns and then move to pronouns this week.

On Tuesday you will get notes on the 4 different categories of nouns. Your homework will be to complete sentences using specific types of nouns.

On Wednesday and Thursday we will move into pronouns and when to use them. Your homework will be to complete sentences using appropriate pronouns.
