Yep! I’m positive.
I’m positive that appositives are VERY HARD for my 6th graders! 🙂
Today we imitated our model sentence again for more practice. Then we looked in the books we are reading to see if we could find an appositive.
Every phrase or sentence that had commas- they thought it was an appositive!
Moving right along- we tried to revise our mystery short stories by finding somewhere we could insert an appositive. This went a little better.
English is so hard. Writing is harder. And reading like a writer is impossible. Lol!
Not really. But they are so not used to doing this. We are going to keep on and persevere and become better writers and readers and thinkers. We are. 🙂
