Today’s word card was buccaneer. 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 classic mystery books (like Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, or Agatha Christie novels) at the library today. If you were absent when we did this, you’ll have to go to the library on your own. You’ll be given three weeks to read your classic mystery book. Then, on Friday, April 27, 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.
This book will also count for this quarter’s extra credit assignment in language arts, so you really do need to have a book.
We also earned a reading sticker today. You can make that up by reading your mystery book at home for 30 minutes. Ask your parent to sign your agenda saying that you did so, then show this to Mrs. Sparhawk at school. She’ll give you the sticker you missed.
