An adjective is a word that describes a noun (person, place, or thing). It can come before or after the noun. It can tell which one, what kind, or how many. There are also identifier adjectives: this, that, these, and those. An adverb is a word that describes a verb (action word). It can come before or after the verb. An adverb tells when, where, how, and to what extent the action occurs. First, locate the nouns. Then, find the adjectives in these sentences: A beautiful painting hung over her massive stone fireplace.

Authors use literary devices to make their writing entertaining and to help the reader to form mental images from the text. Alliteration: Starting with Similar Sounds Alliteration is when multiple words in a sentence have the same beginning consonant sound. Alliterative sounds create rhythm and mood. Alliteration is often used in tongue twisters, riddles, nursery rhymes, and fairy tales. Pam placed peppermints on the plate. Kim came to fly the colorful kite. Hyperbole: Exaggerating for Effect Hyperbole is an obvious exaggeration. It is often used in tall tales and other humorous works. She drove that car faster than the speed of light. We are so hungry we could eat a horse. Onomatopoeia: Making Words from Sounds Onomatopoeia is a word that sounds like the word it describes. The word comes from the actual sound. They are usually but not always verbs. The duck quacked and flapped its wings as it chased the intruder from its nest. With my every step, the buzzing grew louder until at last I found the bee hive. Personification: Giving Life to Inanimate Objects Personification is giving a human quality to a nonhuman and often a nonliving thing. The wind howled outside my window. That last piece of cake kept calling my name. Literary Devices Visit for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4046

Drawing conclusions helps you to be an active reader and better understand what you read. A conclusion is a reasonable decision you make based on the facts and details presented in a text. When you read this text, picture what is happening. Think about how the character feels and look for a clue as to why he’s doing what he’s doing. Charles wiped the sweat from his brow and scowled. Then he bent down and pulled some more weeds. At least it was easy enough to tell which were weeds and which were flowers. But the more time he spent, the larger the garden seemed to grow. Who had come up with the bright idea of Mother’s Day anyways? When you read this text, your first thought may be that the girl has a cold. But consider the clues: Trisha’s eyes were itchy, and her throat was scratchy. She reached for another tissue from the box and blew her nose. “I hate trees,” she grumbled. There are three steps to drawing a conclusion: 1. Consider what the text actually says. The author gives you clues. 2. Think about what would make sense in the situation. 3. Use your background knowledge (experiences) to make a logical choice about what will happen. Clues from the Text Charles is pulling weeds. He does not like the work. He is thinking about Mother’s Day. What I Know Mother’s Day is when you give gifts to your mom. Conclusion Charles is weeding a flower garden for his mom for Mother’s Day. Clues from the Text itchy eyes scatchy throat blowing runny nose “I hate trees” What I Know Tree pollen can cause allergy symptoms. Conclusion Trisha doesn’t have a cold; she is allergic to tree pollen. Drawing Conclusions Visit for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4047
Do not read this text the whole way through. Read a portion and then draw conclusions to answer the questions. Then read the next paragraph. Polar Bear Central It was not a wise place to build a town. Each fall, polar bears spend about three months living there. Churchill, on the west coast of the Hudson Bay in Canada, is a rest stop on the bears' annual journey to the pack ice. About 1,000 polar bears go there to wait for the Bay to freeze over. About 1,000 people live in the town. The bears and the residents must coexist. 1. Why is Churchill in a bad location? ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ 2. Which months are the polar bears in town? ____________________________________________________________ Nowhere else on Earth do so many bears gather in such a small area. Hundreds of tourists flock to Churchill. Now the Bay is freezing over later than it used to. Polar bears spend more time with more tourists. It’s a tragedy waiting to happen. 3. Why do tourists flock to Churchill every fall? ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ 4. What is the tragedy that the author thinks may happen? ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ These bears haven’t eaten in months--not since the pack ice melted and left them land- locked. Yet some tourists act like the bears are tame! Some try to take photos too close to a bear. Others walk alone on the beach and almost invite an attack. The last fatal bear attack in Churchill occurred long ago. But in 2013, two people barely survived an attack. 5. Why do the tourists act differently around the polar bears than the Churchill residents do? ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ Drawing Conclusions Visit for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

To summarize a text, look for the main idea and supporting details. Then write the main idea in your own words. You are not copying the text; you are summing it up. Include only the most essential details. If a text has three paragraphs, the longest your summary should be is four sentences. That’s one sentence for each paragraph plus one to state the main idea. A summary should be much shorter than the text being summarized. For example, this text is 171 words, while its summary is just 52 words. Some animals live in a symbiotic relationship. It is a partnership in which both animals benefit. They are different species, yet they rely on each other. Some birds live this kind of lifestyle. Tiny Darwin ground finches help giant Galapagos tortoises by eating the ticks that are on the tortoises’ skin. This saves the tortoises from tick bites and gives the finches food. The petrel is bird that shares its nest with a tuatara, a lizard that hunts at night. The lizard eats the bugs that would bite the baby petrels. The tuatara will eat other birds’ eggs and babies, but it will not hurt the ones in the nest it shares with the petrel. Red-billed oxpeckers help out impalas. Impalas are antelopes that live on the African plains. The birds eat the ticks and fleas that infest the impalas. These parasites drink the impala's blood. The red-billed oxpeckers enjoy the food, and the impalas enjoy being pest-free. Article’s Main idea: Some birds live in a symbiotic relationship with other animals so that both species benefit. Support from paragraph 1: Tiny Darwin ground finches eat ticks from giant Galapagos tortoises. Support from paragraph 2: Petrels share their nests with tuataras that eat the bugs that would bite the birds’ babies. Support from paragraph 3: Red-billed oxpeckers eat the ticks and fleas on impalas in Africa. Summary: Some birds live in a symbiotic relationship with other animals so that both species benefit. Tiny Darwin ground finches eat ticks from giant Galapagos tortoises. Petrels share their nests with tuataras that eat the bugs that would bite the birds’ babies.

Summarize the article below using the graphic organizer. Article’s Main idea: Support from paragraph 1: Support from paragraph 2: Support from paragraph 3: Support from paragraph 4: Summary: Could a Tree Grow on the Moon? Since the moon has no atmosphere or weather, it is a barren place. Nothing lives there because it is cold and lacks water. Yet when the astronauts landed there in 1969 during the Apollo 11 Mission, they planned to plant an oak tree. Would it have grown? We will never know. They ran out of time to plant it. Their plan was this: Dig a hole, put an acorn in it, water it, and place a small greenhouse over it. A greenhouse is a structure made of glass panels. The astronauts planned fill the greenhouse with carbon dioxide gas, which is what a tree needs in order to live. The acorn would have had moon soil and plenty of sunlight. If a sapling sprouted, it would have been enclosed by the greenhouse, which would trap the moisture and sun’s warmth. The greenhouse would have kept the tiny tree warm, and the water would not have escaped. It would’ve worked the same way as a terrarium. Trees make and use carbon dioxide, so it might have been able to survive for years. However, one day the tree would have grown so tall that it burst through the greenhouse roof. Once the glass broke, the water and carbon dioxide would have escaped and doomed the tree. It All Stacks Up Summarize Visit for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

In 1776, America declared it was free of Great Britain’s control with the Declaration of Independence. Betsy Ross sewed the first U.S. flag. It had 13 stripes and 13 stars. George Washington was elected first president of the United States. In 1789, the U.S. Constitution was written. These first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution guarantee what U.S. citizens can do and say.
Fact Opinion Leave Atsel St. Bridge Alone! A fact is a statement that can be proven. You can find it published in more than one place. The “Amazing Spider Man” is a daily comic strip that began in 1977 and appears in many newspapers and online. This is a fact. It is a daily comic strip on Comics Kingdom online. You can find a list of newspapers that carry this comic strip. An opinion is a statement that tells someone’s point of view. It cannot be proven. In fact, others may disagree. The “Amazing Spider Man,” a comic strip that began in 1977, is the worst of the daily comic strips on Comics Kingdom. This is an opinion because it states a judgment. There is no way to prove that it is the worst of the daily comic strips. The fact that it’s lasted 40 years shows that people like it. Those that read it would disagree that it’s the worst. Know the Difference Think about advertisements. Some of the statements they contain are facts. They can be proven. Some of the statements are opinions. They try to convince you to buy the product or service. People who write editorials include some facts and some opinions. Not every sentence in an editorial is a fact or an opinion. Some are questions, and others are commands. These are neither facts nor opinions. The last statement in this editorial is a command: Governor Mroz’s proposal to replace the Atsel Street Bridge is foolish. The current bridge was built in 1985. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers did a recent study. It states that there are six bridges in our city that are older and in worse repair than the Atsel Street Bridge. The real reason the Governor wants to replace this bridge is to change the “skyline” of the city, giving it a new look. In a speech to increase public support for the new bridge, the Governor stated, “It’s time the city had an update.” Since when has a bidge’s appearance mattered more than its function? We should use the money to repair the older, decaying bridges. Leave the Atsel Street Bridge alone! Fact and Opinion Visit for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

This editorial states 4 facts and 6 opinions. Write the statements to complete the T chart. The school should remove the vending machines that offer potato chips in the cafeteria. If the chips are there, students will eat them. That’s bad news. A 2011 study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that potato chips are the worst junk food for causing weight gain. Childhood obesity has nearly tripled in the past 30 years. In 2010, Michelle Obama started the Let’s Move program to fight childhood obesity. But studies have proved that exercise alone will not stop students from packing on the pounds. They must make wise food choices. For every bag of potato chips a student eats, he or she does not eat an orange or a banana. Yet eating the piece of fruit would keep the student healthy and trim. Why don’t we make better food choices easier for students? Sign the petition to have potato chips removed from the cafeteria.

Grand Opening!!! You’ll be sorry if you miss this sale. Come early to save big! Why Does an Author Write a Text? An author writes for one of three reasons: to inform to teach or explain something to the reader. This is the purpose behind most nonfiction writing. Examples include the directions to assemble a model car, and a nonfiction book about the Civil War. to entertain to hold the reader’s interest; to make the reader enjoy the writing. This is the purpose behind most fiction writing. Examples include a story about a Native American boy following a herd of buffalo in the 1700s, and a futuristic story about a girl traveling to Mars. to persuade to convince the reader to agree with the author’s point of view about an issue. Editorials and advertisements are examples of persuasive writing. What’s Point of View? An author chooses the point of view from which the text is written. This is also known as the narrator voice. There are four choices for point of view: First person The narrator uses the words I, me, and myself. The narrator is a character in the story, living through the events in the tale. With this voice, the narrator only knows what other characters tell him or her. The narrator cannot reveal to the reader what another character is thinking. Second person The narrator uses the words you and your. A writer chooses second person voice if he or she wants to make the reader feel as if they are a part of the action. This is the voice used least often. Third person omniscient The narrator uses the words he, she, and they. The narrator is not a part of the story but can enter any of the characters’ minds and tell the reader what the characters are thinking. Third person objective The narrator uses the words he, she, and they. The narrator is not a part of the story and cannot go into any of the characters’ minds and let the reader know what the characters are thinking. Newspaper articles and nonfiction books are often written in this voice. “I’m so sad, I can’t stop crying.” She is thinking about scoring the winning goal.
