The activity using the magnetic poetry words was such a blast. It was fun and I was able to learn more about the way sentences should be put together. BECAUSE grammar has never been the entire focus of a class I’ve taken, these new things are quite enlightening. A teacher has never taken the time to break apart sentences or even explain the parts of it.
I’m going to be honest here and say that this was the first time hearing about the S-v-o sentence (And all the other styles!) BUT I didn’t panic when they were introduced and instead I worked hard on grasping the new knowledge. It’s easy FOR me to get discouraged AND I’m learning that just because it’s a new concept doesn’t mean I won’t be able to understand it. ALTHOUGH I may not always understand, I can keep working at it and use my peers and Barbara for help.
In the magnetic words activity my partner and I created sentences using our Country Words selection. We produced a sentence, ‘I believe in Mama’. Short and simple, YET it addresses the subject, verb and object. We also came up with ‘I keep forgetting why I love you.’ Too funny!
I’m learning that I still have learning to do. SINCE this class is helping me become SO much I feel closer to my goal of becoming totally confident in a classroom of my own. With patience I think I’ll be able to achieve that. As mama always says, never give up! AND I do believe in mama.
