Today’s word card was guinea. 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 novels at the library last week. If you were absent when we did this, ask Mrs. Webmaster if you can go to the library to check out a historical fiction novel of your own. 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 three weeks’ time. It must be a historical fiction novel from our library–none from home.
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’s journal writing prompt was List five characters who’ve been called “captain,” and name each one’s ship. Remember, you need to copy the whole writing prompt onto your reading log and fill out all the lines provided, with your response. Thanks!
You should ask Mrs. Webmaster if we turned in our sticker sheets, reading logs, or word cards today.
