Now what is this melee I spoke of in the blog title, well I'll tell ya. My little Darling Diva is in the 5th grade this year and they are kicking off their how to write lessons. You remember this, right. For me it was a hellish bout of memorization and a lack of anything that had to do with fun.
I can still hear the teachers with their..."Repeat after me, a noun is a person, place or thing. A verb is an action word. An adverb describes the verb....."
What!! Wait, describes the verb, what does that mean? You know, memorization is great for some things, like state capitals and math facts, but soooo not for the parts of a sentence. You gotta do to get that. Use it, practice it, find new ways of absorbing what a noun, verb and adverb is....
Enter in...The Me Book!
Have a great week everyone.
