Today’s word card was stockade. 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. Webmaster’s reading students checked out historical fiction books at the library today. If you were absent when we did this, ask Mrs. Webmaster if you can go to the library and check out a historical fiction novel of your own. You’ll be given almost four weeks to read your historical fiction books. Then, on Thursday, Oct. 25, you’ll need to turn in a historical fiction 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 four weeks’ time. It must be a historical fiction book from our library, and please make sure it’s one you’ve never read before.
We earned a reading sticker today as well (for our sticker sheets). To make up a sticker, simply read your library book at home for 30 minutes and have your parents sign your agenda stating that you did so.
