marooned on an island

Today’s word card was schooner. On your Vocabulary Word Cards worksheet, you’ll need to fill out the syllable breaks, definition, part of speech, and sentence portion of your word card, but you are welcome to copy today’s drawing from one of your classmates’ word card worksheets.

We continued reading Treasure Island today. If you need time to catch up on the reading you missed, there’s usually time for that on Mondays when we go to the library as a class. To earn the reading sticker that you missed, just read your library book at home tonight and have your parent sign your agenda saying that you did so. Then show your agenda to Mrs. Sparhawk, and she’ll give you the reading participation sticker that you missed. Thanks!

Today’s journal writing prompt was How did Captain Billy Bones’ “seafaring man with one leg” foreshadow the true nature of a certain character? Remember, you need to copy the whole writing prompt onto your reading log, along with your response to it.

Students turned in their vocabulary word card worksheets today. If you were gone for this, you need to remember to turn your vocabulary word card worksheet in as well. New ones are in Reading Box 2 in the make-up work center.
