(Can't Ready My) Contractions

Tune: "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga

Adapted by: Jim Duey

Skill: Writing with APostrophes to Show Contraction

 

Ah-pos-tro-phes! Show con-trac-tion

Ah-pos-tro-phes! Show con-trac-tion Ah-pos-tro-phes!

 

I want to smush a word when I write an essay,

It needs to look just right, so we'll know just what you say.

                                                     (Contractions)

 

I have two small words I want to combine from the start,

Remove a letter, put a mark there, that'll show the part-

 

I've, You'd, Won't, It's    I've, You'd, Won't, It's.

I'll write the mark, you'll know what I've got.

I've, You'd, Won't, It's    I've, You'd, Won't, It's.

I'll write the mark, you'll now what I've got.

 

Apostrophe's in the Word I write

Tune: "Party Rockers in the House Tonight"

Adapted by: Jim Duey

Skill: Writing with Apostrophes to Show Possession

 

Apostrophes!

Yeah!     Woo!

Let's Write!

 

Apostrophes in the words I wrote

Show the reader that I own the red kite

__No way I have more than~ one light

Show the reader that I own the red kite

 

Apostrophes in the words I write

Show the reader that I own the red kite

__No wayI have more than~ one light

Show the reader that I                                  own that!

 

Ryan's club, summer's rock

Emma's brown curl,

Eastland's boardwalk...

Leads you right to Pricilla's gift shop!

Karley's birthday-

I got writer's block!

    Polluted Gowanus Canal doesn't scare away neighborhood development

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
