WEEK OF March 16-20
This Week in Language Arts…
Skill: An adverb tells how, when, or where something happens. It can describe a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. Many adverbs that tell how end in -ly. You can change adjectives to adverbs by adding -ly.
A comparative adverb compares two people, places, things, or groups. Add -er to most adverbs to make them comparative. For example: longer, faster
A superlative adverb is used to compare three or more people, places, things, or groups. Add -est to most adverbs to make them superlative. For example: longest, fastest.

STORY: “Ghost Towns of the American West ”
To generalize means to make a broad statement or rule that applies to several examples. Clue words such as all, many, and most can signal that an author is making a generalization. If these generalizations are supported by the text, they are valid. If not, they are faulty generalizations.
