EWS STAFF AND STUDENTS! WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY GRAMMAR NEWS!
Each week you will hear a new grammar tip that will be repeated for the week.
Your teachers will have a sheet with one question on it based on the tip of the week. If you accept the challenge; you need to correct it then, with your name and homeroom on it, put it in the envelop on Mrs. Etchell’s door.
If it is answered correctly – you get your name in a draw for an ipad.
We have about 25 weeks of grammar tips before our school testing – do the practice correctly every week and that is 25 times your name will be put in the draw. Each practice will only take one minute.
25 practices X 1 minute = 25 minutes over 7 months. Completely doable! And the chance to win an ipad!
I like that math!
This week’s Challenge:
Every beginning of a sentence and name of a person or place (including I) has to be a capital.
