If you’re an English teacher, librarian, or homeschooling mom looking for free handouts (including my snowflake-shaped poem assignment, rhyme table, and other teacher tools, I recommend visiting EnglishEmporium, which offers free graphic organizers, lesson ideas, vocabulary lists and more, in weekly blog posts).
If we had class today, we did a word card on the vocabulary word, schooner. Ask Mrs. Webmaster if you need to make that up or not, because if the assembly started early, then you won’t need to make it up. But if the assembly started late, you will need to make it up. In that case, on your Vocabulary 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, but you are welcome to copy today’s drawing from one of your classmates’ word card worksheets.
We also filled out the following journal question: If you were marooned on Treasure Island, how would you spend your time? After we completed that journal entry, we turned in our “Treasure Island Reading Log” journals. Please turn yours in as well. Don’t forget: put it directly in Mrs. Webmaster’s HAND; never leave papers on her desk.
