7th Grade Language Arts
November 5, 2021
MEMORIZE the 23 auxiliary (helping) verbs. STUDY the sentence patterns and how to recognize intransitive, transitive, and linking verbs. We will have a quiz on Tuesday.
Write 10 sentences of your own using the different type of verbs:
LABEL YOUR SENTENCES
As you are reading, look for good vocabulary words. By the end of the book, you will need to have 20 words with definitions.
Look for Figurative Language (similes, metaphors, personification, overstatements, understatements, or onomatopoeias). By the end, you will need to have five examples. Write the quote with page number and what type of device it is. If you do not know what one of these are then look it up in your literature look. Definitions are in the back.
Create a character list with descriptions.
As you are reading, just record all of this in your composition notebook under your writing section. This will be a rough draft. The final product will be done over the first two weeks of winter break. However, these things you will need to do as you are reading.
Have a great weekend,
