Today’s word card was maroon. 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. Everyone turned in their vocabulary word cards today. Did you turn yours in yet? Please do so as soon as possible. Thanks!
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 If you were aboard the Hispaniola and a mutiny happened, what would you do? Remember, you need to copy the whole writing prompt onto your reading log, along with your response to it.
Finally, Mrs. Sparhawk collected our Treasure Island Reading Logs today (journals). Turn yours in right away, because if you wait more than 24 hours past the due date, you will be given late credit. Put makeup work directly into Mrs. Sparhawk’s hand; never leave it on her messy desk (or it may get lost)! New reading logs are found in the makeup work center.
