Today’s word card was coracle. 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, but you are welcome to copy today’s drawing from one of your classmates’ word card worksheets.
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 your 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. Webmaster, and she’ll give you a sticker for the day you missed.
Today was our library day, so we didn’t do a journal; however Mrs. Webmaster handed out our book report forms and went over them with the class. You can find extra copies of this in Reading Box 5 in the make-up work center. Be sure and take one home with you, as book report forms will be due on Friday, September 28, 2012.
Our next book report will be on a historical fiction title. Some students may have checked out such a book at the library today. Do you need to renew or return your mystery book? If so, please take care of that between classes if possible.
You should ask Mrs. Webmaster if we turned in our sticker sheets, reading logs, or word cards today.
