Words We Live By: Your Annotated Guide to the Constitution by Linda R. Monk
“We the People. . .” Just who is this “We”? Who are “the People”? Sometimes called the most important words in the Constitution, the “We the People” phrase is the focus of a close reading activity that illustrates the dynamic nature of the Constitution. As Linda Monk points out in her article, “Words We Live by: Your Annotated Guide to the Constitution,” originally the words did not apply to women, white males who did not own property, Native Americans, or African Americans. After examining an annotated version of Monk’s article, learners select one of the provided prompts and reflect on how the Constitution has evolved and how the Supreme Court has construed these words over the years.
It may seem like a simple skill, but who couldn't benefit from a quick grammar review?

Also included is a chart showing the singular and plural versions of first, second, and third person pronoun forms. Note: This resource is part of a series.
Conjunctions and Interjections

Question words, question marks
Practice the five W's and question marks with a fun grammar activity. After copying the words who, what, where, when, why, and how, kindergartners fill the words into various questions. For extra practice, have kids come up with their own questions to ask each other.
When is a Noun a Verb? Examining Double Duty Words
Act and act, address and address...there are so many words in our dictionary that can function as nouns or verbs. Start this lesson by having your class list as many as they possibly can. When an adequate list presents itself, have your class members write sentences with a couple of them, using them as both a verb and a noun. From here, kids can read the attached article about Google, answering the five presented questions, or complete some of the activities detailed. A superb language study.
