bird twirl When an r follows a vowel, it shouts over the vowel. So the vowel doesn’t say its name or its short sound. It makes a whole new sound. That is because r is controlling the vowel. When r comes right after the vowel, it affects that vowel. Say these words. Listen to the r-controlled vowel. yard barn germs herd corn sword blurry fur R-Controlled Vowels Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

That skirt does not go with your orange shirt. 3. On Saturday a pretty red cardinal sang in the farmyard. 4. My mother took me to the doctor because the sunburn really hurt. 5.

A synonym is a word with the same meaning or a very close meaning to an- other word. You can usually substitute one synonym for the other in a sen- tence, and it will mean the same thing. Why learn synonyms? There are three reasons. 1. Synonyms are important when you are writing so that you don’t use the same word over and over. Using different words will make your writing more interesting. Here’s an example: beautiful = lovely Rico looked out the window and saw that it was a sunny, beautiful day. He decided he wouldn’t spend such a lovely day indoors watching TV. 2. Synonyms can also help you to figure out the meaning of an unknown word in context. Tori had never seen Jack act so immature. In fact, he was being so childish that she was tempted to walk away and not admit they were friends. You may not know the word immature, but you can figure it out because the word childish is used as a synonym in the next sentence. 3. Learning synonyms helps you to increase your vocabulary. The more words you know, the faster and easier it will be for you to read and write. quick = rapid If you live where there is a rapid transit system, you should be able to get anywhere in the city quickly. (Quickly is the adverb form of the word quick.) Synonyms Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4024
Read each sentence. On the line, write a synonym for the underlined word. You may know a synonym for the word. If you don’t, then use a thesaurus to find one. 1. Sitting on a branch of the tree was a hideous bird. __________________ 2. It is against the law to mistreat a pet. __________________ 3. Did you know the right answer? __________________ 4. We went on a journey to China. __________________ 5. They had an awful time on their vacation. __________________ 6. David was afraid of the snake. __________________ 7. In the morning, I licked the moisture from the leaves. ________________ 8. Sydney leaped onto the trampoline. __________________ 9. Please give me your honest opinion. __________________ 10. Our table server was cheerful. __________________ SAM Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4024 Synonyms
An antonym is a word with the opposite meaning to another word. If you substitute an antonym for another word in a sentence, it will change the meaning completely. Why learn antonyms? There are two reasons. Antonym pairs big and little happy and sad few and many up and down 1. Antonyms can help you to figure out the meaning of an unknown word in context. Now Lydia was really scared. She had never seen Ben act so petrified. She was used to Ben being fearless at all times. Yet there he stood, pale and trembling. You may not know the word petrified, but you can figure it out because the word fearless is used as an antonym in the next sentence. The words pale and trembling also help you to understand how he must feel in order to look that way. 2. Learning antonyms helps you to increase your vocabulary. The more words you know, the faster and easier it will be for you to read and write. It is also useful when making comparisons. For example, enormous and tiny are antonyms. Read this sentence to see how the writer made a comparison so you could form a picture in your mind. Standing so close to the enormous grizzly bear made Sarah look tiny. Antonyms Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4025
Write an antonym for each word given. Then, use the pair of words in a sentence. The first one is done for you. light is the opposite of _____________ ______________________________________________________ 1. angry is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ 2. good is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ 3. crying is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ 4. far is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ 5. smiling is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ 6. dead is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ 7. sunrise is the opposite of _______________ _____________________________________________________ dark She turned the light on so it would not be dark.

A noun is a person, place or thing. An adjective is a word that tells more about a noun. It describes a noun. Adding adjectives to your writing makes it more vivid and interesting. When you read, it is important that you form pictures in your mind based on the words in the story. Adjectives are what help you to form the pictures. Comparing with Adjectives Some adjectives compare nouns. There are two ways that these adjectives are formed. When you compare 2 things, you use the word more or less, or you add –er to the end of the adjective. When you compare 3 or more things, you use the word most or least, or you add –est to the end of the adjective. Compare these sentences: The boy sat. Can you picture that? Not really. There’s not enough detail. The boy sat on the musty old couch. The words musty and old are adjectives. You wrinkle your nose as you picture him sitting on that yucky couch. Jazz is more popular than rock ‘n roll. Randy is shorter than Nicole. Buy the vase that is the least expensive. This is the biggest tree in my neighborhood.

1 + - - + 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 The author’s purpose is the reason that he or she has for writing the text. An author writes something for one of three purposes: to inform, to entertain, or to persuade. Inform When an author writes to inform, the purpose is for the reader to learn something from the text. Nonfiction is almost always informative writing. This includes newspaper and magazine articles. Here’s an example: Yale University had a cockroach problem in its library. The roaches were eating the old books' covers and binding glue. These books could never be replaced. So the library was closed for four days during the winter. The heat was shut off. The cockroaches froze to death. Entertain When an author writes to entertain, the purpose is for the reader to enjoy the text. Poetry, humor, and all genres of fiction are examples of entertainment writing. Here’s an example: My little brother is really into action movies. His favorite actor is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Last night I was looking at the choices on MovieNet. My little brother came into the room. He grabbed the remote. He said that he wanted to find a movie starring “Arnold Snorts-in-Anger!” That made me laugh so hard I couldn’t even get mad at him. Persuade When an author writes to persuade, the purpose is to convince the reader to agree with the author’s point of view. Advertisements, editorials, and speeches are all persuasive writing. Here’s an example: It is a bad idea to have a curfew for teens under 17 in our town. A curfew says that adults don’t trust kids to do the right thing. Studies show that teens rise to our expectations. So we are setting the bar very low when we say that they can’t even decide when to be home. We would never put a curfew on adults. So why do it to teens? Author’s Purpose Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4028

Sequential order is the order in which things occur. It is the sequence of events. Authors include words to help you understand the sequence. Some of these words include: first, second, next, then, last, before, after that, finally, back then, today, and now. Knowing how to use sequence words helps you to write a summary. The story below is a summary of a whole vacation. It sums up the major events without telling you every single detail. Notice how the author used sequence words to guide the reader: The first thing we did on our trip was get in a plane. We flew to Tampa Beach. Then we checked into our hotel. We spent the next three days playing on the beach. We built sandcastles and played in the water. It was so clear that we could see fish in the water with us. The weather was sunny and warm. We didn’t want to leave. Finally, we flew home. We’d had a great trip! Here’s what happened on their trip in sequential order: First, they flew in a plane to Tampa Beach.

Write a summary of the following passage. Use at least four sequence words to help your reader. John Lea and William Perris opened a store in Worcester, England in 1823. They mixed chemicals to give to people who felt ill. They also made any mixture a customer asked for. In 1836, Arthur Sandys asked the men to make a sauce. He had tasted it in India and had the recipe. John and William followed the recipe exactly. It used anchovies. They are tiny fish. The men poured the sauce into two barrels. One barrel was for Arthur. The other was theirs. The pair tasted the sauce. They thought it was awful. They told Arthur they had failed. The men left their barrel in the basement. A year later they opened it. They tasted it again, and it was great! What had happened? The sauce had fermented. That means that the sugar in it had turned to alcohol. Yeast and bacteria cause things to ferment. This process had made the sauce delicious. John and William named it Worcestershire sauce. They grew rich selling it. Today it is popular around the world.

When you write, you don’t want to use too many short sentences. It will make your writing choppy. You can join ideas using conjunctions. The three most common conjunctions are: and, but, or. and (used to join similar ideas) Choppy : Dave is going to the restaurant. Sandra is going to the restaurant. Better : Dave and Sandra are going to the restaurant. Since both people are going to the restaurant, it makes sense to say so in one sentence using and. but (used to join opposite ideas) Choppy : I like reading. I don’t like math. Better : I like reading, but I don’t like math. This is a clear case of opposite ideas: liking one thing and not the other. Use but to join opposites. or (used to join alternatives or show uncertainty) Choppy : Robin has to choose. She can go to the park on Sunday. She can go to the picnic. She can go to the beach. Better : Robin has to choose whether to go to the park or the picnic or the beach on Sunday. Robin can’t go everywhere on Sunday. She has three alternatives. Use or to show her choices.
