The Thompson Times
Week of March 9th
Spelling Words
This week we will read Mr. Putter and Tabby Fly a Plane, a realistic
fiction story by Cynthia Rylant. We will talk about plot and sequencing
story events. We will have a comprehension test on Friday. The
vocabulary words for this story are cranes, directions, promise, twitch,
and worry.
Our spelling words this week contain open syllable vowel patterns. We
will review plural nouns and editing marks.
We are finishing up Chapter 7 and will start Chapter 8 on money. The
biggest problems students have with money is identifying coins,
especially with the newer coins. A great way to practice is to pull coins
out of your purse/pocket each night to practice identifying and counting
the change.
