Today’s word card was cutlass. 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.
After doing our word cards in reading, we went to the library. There, everyone checked out a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys mystery book. Since you were absent today, ask Mrs. Webmaster for a library hall pass, go to the library, and check out a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys book of your own. Also, write the due date for your mystery book report in your agenda; those book report forms will be due on Sept. 28 (so you have three week s to read your book).
Finally, we did some silent reading in class today. To earn the reading sticker that you missed, just read your library book at home for 30 minutes tonight and have your parent sign your agenda saying that you did so. Then show your agenda to Mrs. Webmaster, and she’ll give you the reading participation sticker that you missed. Thanks!
