Today’s word card was anchorage. 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.
Mrs. Sparhawk’s reading students checked out Nancy Drew Mysteries or Hardy Boys Mysteries at the library today. If you were absent when we did this, ask Mrs. Sparhawk if you can go to the library to check out a Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys mystery of your own. You’ll be given three weeks to read your mystery books. Then, on Friday, March 16, you’ll need to turn in a mystery book report form. (She’ll give out those forms the week that book reports are due.) Be sure you pick a story that you can finish reading in three weeks’ time. It must be a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys mystery.
We earned a reading sticker today as well (for our sticker sheets). To make up a sticker, simply read your library book at home for 30 minutes and have your parents sign your agenda stating that you did so.
