My Language Arts class made presentations on grammar. We got to select a grammar topic then do research and learn about it so we could share the information that we learned to the rest of our class. I chose how to write numbers in sentences. One rule to remember for my topic is that whenever you use a number under 9 it needs to be written out in word-form, but on the other hand when you use a number greater than 9 in your sentence it should be written in numerals like 24. My presentation was not that hard to do because I found enough information on plenty of websites and applications (grammar app). This project wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, and it was even a little fun. Working with numbers in sentences isn’t that hard, if you know the rules of course! I enjoyed doing this and hope. We do more research on grammar this year!
In Mrs. Donnelly’s class, we had to make a grammar project on a specific grammar rule. I chose run-on sentences. I chose this topic because I always make run-on sentences. Then I don’t know if it’s a run on sentence or not. This just drives me crazy. So I decided to choose this topic for my grammar project. It was really fun to research it, and my presentation made the class laugh. It made me feel proud. Overall, I think that I did pretty well on my grammar project. People laughed, Mrs. Donnelly laughed, I had the correct info, and it was fun presenting. Those are the aspects of a good presentation and a good grade.
So for LA we had to do a grammar project! I did how to use numbers in a sentence because I wanted to know how to use them to improve my writing. Here is one rule: if you have two numbers in a row, spell out the first. That means in a sentence like: There were 12 7 year olds in the room, you would change it to: There were twelve 7 year olds in the room. It was fun presenting all of the rules then giving a little quiz to the class (which they passed!).
My grammar project was on verbs. When I got up I was soooooooooo nervous. When I got going I was a little less nervous but I was still nervous. As I went over helping verbs + action verbs = verb phrase I realized that I forgot to put a picture on my ending page (which was my next slide). I went to the next slide and hoped it would have looked as good as with the picture. Once past the end page with no obvious boo’s I felt relieved. One rule is: In the sentence “The pasta tastes good” tastes is a linking verb because you can replace it with linking verb is.
In LA we had to do a presentation about a grammar rule. My rule was how to use numbers in a sentence. For two digit numbers or two word numbers you should use standard form and for 0-9 you should use word form. The project was fun and interesting.
For Language Arts we had to pick a grammar topic. I picked what a homophone is. Homophones are words that sound exactly the same and are sometimes spelled exactly the same. Some homophones have three words. A way to remember homophones is you hear a sound from a phone, so they sound the same. Homophones are a lot of fun to learn about.
I did my presentation on HOW TO USE A SEMICOLON. I chose to do a presentation on a semicolon because I didn’t really know how to use it in a sentence, so I chose how to use a semicolon to learn how to use it. One rule for using a semicolon is you always use a semicolon when two sentences are very similar. Making the presentation didn’t take very long but it was very fun making it.
