Week of Jan. 8, 2001
This week's selection is Harriet Ziefert's account of Henry's Wrong Turn which is based on a true story. It is the tale of a humpback whale that gets lost in New York's Hudson Bay.
Your child can review and practice vocabulary list words with the games I have linked below. Just click on the Java Games link in the Quia activities section and it will take you directly to the games choices page. It may be helpful to print out the list of terms (vocabulary list words and definitions used in the games) from the games choices page so your child can refer to them as needed during practice.
There are several links to interesting sites for information about whales in the Useful links section at the bottom of the Class Page. You will also find photos of New York Harbor and some coloring pages and craft activities for fun and background information.
