Welcome students! In my reading class, we’ll be reading a novel called Treasure Island this quarter. We do have a seating chart, so please ask the teacher where you should sit.
Every day when you come to reading class, you’ll see a word, drawing, and part-of-speech on the white board. Get a Vocabulary Word Cards worksheet from box 1 in the make-up work center, and you’ll need to grab a dictionary too. Copy today’s word, picture, and part-of-speech onto this worksheet. Use your dictionary to define the word. Finally, create a sentence that demonstrates meaning. (By that, I mean, the sentence itself shows the meaning of the word.)
Today’s word card was captain. 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 also gave us a manila file folder, on which we put our names. You’ll need to get one from her. She also passed out two handouts. We’re keeping these in our manila folders. You can find the two handouts in boxes 2 and 3 in the makeup work center. Take one of each of these handouts and put them inside the manila folder that Mrs. Webmaster gives you.
