Second Grade Teacher Information for Parents / Games for Students

Our story this week is the beautifully illustrated Laotian folk tale, Nine-in-One, Grr! Grr!, written by Blia Xiong.  The Hmong people of Laos had no written language until the 1950s, and much of their history and culture is recorded in pictures on story cloths.  Nancy Hom's illustrations for Nine-in-One, Grr! Grr! are modeled after actual Hmong story cloths and show Tiger's journey to the sky to find out how many cubs she will have.  Take time to enjoy the artwork in the reader as you and your child read this week.  There are also some links  to more Hmong story cloths and information in the Useful links section of this page.

Your child can review and practice vocabulary list words with the games linked in the Quia activities section below; just click on the link and it will take you directly to the choices for Vocabulary Practice Games.  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 your child can refer to them as needed during practice.  Have your child use his reader to sequence story events in the Picture Perfect game.

It is my hope that you will find this class page informative and that your child will enjoy learning new vocabulary through the games I have made.  I have included some additional links for background and enrichment purposes.  As always, there is a link to last week's Class Page, too.
