Critical Reading:  The Noun Phrase

Knowing parts of speech and how to manipulate them is important to any student writer (actually any writer.)  Start with the simple noun and see how adding to it makes it stand out and become more precise.  Learn about using pre-modifiers, modifiers that come before the noun, by adding adjectives,  verbals, and possessive pronouns.  See how to expand the pre-modifier to make a very specific noun phrase.  There are also post-modifiers that come after the noun.  They can be tricky so be sure you are saying what you mean.  Knowing grammar is important, but its importance is in enhancing meaning for the reader.

TVOKids: DSS Dance Mania Games

Dancing is a lot more fun if you are doing more than just wiggling.  Watch videos of twelve different dance steps.  The teen instructor’s primary caution is that you not sit still.  He shows how to do each step as a whole and in a close-up.  You can pause, rewind, and fast forward after you feel like you’ve figured out the step.  He’s a great teacher and fun to watch.  After you are familiar with the steps, choreograph your own dance.  The instructions are clear, and you have lots of choices of steps and music.  After you are finished, watch your creation and follow along.Apr. 7http://www.tvokids.com/games/dssdancemania
