Examples of Activities:

-Underline the adjectives and adverbs in a sentence -List adjectives and adverbs that describe a picture -Draw a picture and then write a descriptive paragraph -Read an article and circle the adjectives and adverbs -Compare people and objects using comparative and superlative adjectives -Write a story, and then go back and add as much detail as possible -Read a story and then answer questions using the idiomatic expressions that the story introduced -With a partner, pantomime an adjective and have the class guess which adjective it is



The schedule that my mentor teacher uses is the following:
Mondays and Wednesdays – English Vocabulary and Grammar
Tuesdays and Thursdays – Homework Help Day (students work on homework from all of their classes and the teacher helps)
Fridays – “Can You Believe It?” (short stories that help to teach students common idiomatic expressions)
Every day – Daily Oral Language: This is an overhead that the teacher projects at the beginning of class. For each day, there are two sentences with errors (pertaining to what they are learning, in this case it will be nouns). The students find the errors and write the sentences correctly in their D.O.L. notebook.
