Today’s word card was villainous. 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.
Here’s today’s journal-writing prompt for Treasure Island. Record this in your reading log please: Re-read pages 34-37 and, based on the information you find there, explain who John Flint was. Remember, you need to copy the whole writing prompt onto your reading log, along with your response to it.
Students turned in their sticker sheets and reading logs today. Please turn yours in as well. Do you remember what Mrs. Sparhawk uses as her inbox? Her HAND. That’s right! Never put make-up work on her desk; place it directly in her hand! New sticker sheets and reading logs are found in Reading Boxes 3 and 4, in the make-up work center. You’ll need to get one of each for yourself.
But what if your sticker sheet is missing a sticker or two? What if you’ve been gone? How do you make up a reading sticker for your sticker sheet? Just have your parent sign your agenda, saying that you read a library book at home for 30 minutes. If you show this to Mrs. Sparhawk during class, she’ll give you a sticker for the day you were absent. But don’t wait to long to get your work turned in!
