Second Grade Teacher Information for Parents/ Games for Students
WEEK of SEPTEMBER 18th, 2000

Children's author Peggy Parish has made a career of writing books about the wacky antics of Amelia Bedelia.  The third story in Unit 1 is about the other people in Amelia's family.  Our students will meet Amelia Bedelia's parents, brother, cousins, aunts, and uncles in Amelia Bedelia's Family Album.  We will use class time to explore puns and make sure the children understand the word play used in this week's story.

I have made some games your child can use to practice vocabulary for this story.  The games are linked in the Quia activities section below; just click on the link and it will take you directly to the game choices. It may be helpful to print out the list of terms (vocabulary list words and definitions used in the games) from the game choices page so that your child can refer to them as needed during practice.  There is also a trivia game that tests your knowledge of the differences between Amelia Bedelia's family and real-life people.

I hope you will find this class page informative and that your child will enjoy preparing for the vocabulary portion of the weekly test through the games linked below.  I have included a few additional links in the Useful links section for background/enrichment purposes. Some children may want to start a scrapbook or family album of their own, and several of the links give directions for doing so.  As always, you will also find a link to last week's Class Page.
