 People write things for different
reasons. Sometimes authors write to
explain something or give information.
Other times authors write to be funny
or to entertain.
 As you read, look for clues about why

questions that help them understand and
remember what they are reading.

you read Who Works Here?

Writing Trait of the Week
Introduce: Conventions
 Conventions are rules good writers follow when
they write. Good writers spell words a certain
way. They begin sentences and special titles with
capital letters. They put end marks after
sentences and some special titles. Think about
whether the author of Who Works Here? Follows
spelling and sentence rules.
Who drives a big bus? That is Mr. Chang.
 Suppose the author had written these sentences.
Are they written correctly?
Writing Trait of the Week
Introduce: Conventions
 Look at the following paragraph. Add capital
letters and end punctuation where needed.
our bus driver is ms franklin she takes us to
school and back home now she is moving away we
need a new bus driver will you take the job
Our bus driver is Ms. Franklin. She
takes us to school and back home. Now
she is moving away. We need a new bus
driver. Will you take the job?
Grammar
– Special Titles
 We call some persons by special titles. A
police officer might be called Officer. If
you know a police officer’s name, you
might call him Officer Brown. Special
titles can make your writing more
interesting.

special title
a doctor
Dr. Reed
man
Mr. Davis
Wrap Up

pause and think about
what you read to be
sure it makes sense. A
good reader often asks
questions to help make
the information easier
to understand.
How does each
helper help me?
How does the
helper help our
community?
Why did the
author write
this selection?
Who makes our neighborhood a nice
place in which to live?
