Weathering is the process where rock is dissolved, worn away or broken down into smaller and smaller pieces. Once the rock has been weakened and broken up by weathering it is ready for erosion. Erosion happens when rocks and sediments are picked up and moved to another place by ice, water, wind or gravity.
January Technology News… Computer Fun and Learning – Parts of Speech
A good writer knows how words work and how to use them. One step to becoming a good writer is learning how to classify words. Students love to build with blocks. There are different types of blocks: basic square blocks, connectors, corners, windows, doors, and more. In order to make a fabulous building, they need to combine several types of blocks. We can think about words like building blocks. It takes several types of words to make a good sentence or paragraph. In English, we sort words into eight
types, called parts of speech. The eight parts of speech are: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Let’s learn more about them. Go to any web browser and type in the link below or look for the links on our school website: www.frrsd.org.
