Week of February 20, 2001
The story this week, Best Wishes, Ed, focuses on Antarctic life. It is the fictional account of an unlikely friendship that develops between a penguin and a whale. We will use story events to compare and contrast with real life characteristics of the wildlife of Antarctica.
Kids: This week's Class Page has a bonus; actually, it is something that doesn't belong with the other information on the page. See if you can figure out what it is - the answer will appear on next week's Class Page.
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.
