Language Arts: We continue to hone our skills identifying the main idea and finding supporting details in the text. Our word work focused on words with -ir, -er, and -ur. Please continue to use Spelling City to review the words of the week. We are expanding our vocabularies with robust words featured in our read aloud. This week we read Aesop’s fable, The Lion and the Mouse and explored the words: mercy, struggling and captured. We also read Tacky, a story about an odd penguin who saves his friends from hunters. Much like the mouse in Aesop’s fable, this story features an unlikely hero, encouraging us to appreciate differences in each other.
