Week of March 19, 2001
We have begun the second unit of our reader. This unit, called Better Together, deals with issues like friendship, teamwork, and cooperation. This week's story,The Best Friends Club, explores how to make and be a good friend.
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.
Links to additional enrichment and background information can be found in the Useful links section at the bottom of the Class Page. Your child can learn about Elizabeth Winthrop, author of the Lizzie and Harold books, check out an online clubhouse for kids, read about U.S. Presidents and Vice-Presidents (Lizzie and Harold held these offices in The Best Friends Club), or learn to play Cat's Cradle and other string games by clicking on the links below.
