Today’s word card was foreshadow. On yourVocabulary Word Cards worksheet, you’ll need to fill out the syllable breaks, definition, part of speech (i.e. noun, verb, adjective, etc.) and sentence portion of your word card for this, 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 pages you missed, there’s usually time for that on Mondays when we go to the library as a class. Meanwhile, do you remember how to make up a missing reading sticker? Just read a library book at home and ask your parent to sign your agenda stating that you did so (under that day’s date). Show this to Mrs. Sparhawk, and she’ll give you a sticker for the day you missed.

Today’s journal writing prompt was How did 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.
