1. What is one piece of important learning in reading or writing you have gained this week?

In writing a piece of important information I got was when I was writing an essay, I was told that there is 5 paragraphs in an essay and the first paragraph is the introduction, the second paragraph has a main topic and then supporting facts on the bottom. On the third and fourth it is the same thing as paragraph 2. Then the last paragraph it is the conclusion.

2. Explain how this has helped you in your reading or writing.

This helped me because then when ever I write and essay again, then I know how to organize the paragraphs and that will make my essay smooth and organized. This will also help me because then I know how to support my main topic on the three paragraphs.

3. Explain what the difference is between a common noun and a proper noun.

A common noun is like a word you would see very commonly. Like cat, desk, car. But a proper noun is a noun that is named. Like Mary, Lily, DELL (a type of computer) or SONY (a type of T.V). So a common noun is a thing, person or place but not named but a proper noun is a thing, person or place that is named.
