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

I have learned to notice the important words that signal nouns. These are actually pretty important in a sentence.

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

It helps me know if a word is a noun or not.

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

A common noun is a noun that is not specific- it is explaining something general. A proper noun is specific and capitalized. Example: fish is a common noun but Marlin is a proper noun.
