Story Homework

Our Unit 8 VCCV pattern words for spelling are a bit difficult.  I'd suggest using the links below to practice at home.

Today we read and practiced the play called The Three Little Cyber Pigs.  Rereading this story is tonight's homework.  We practiced our vocabulary words including many computer words such as virus, delete, laptop, font, graphics, internet browser, and email.  We will also read another story called the Three Little Pigs Revisited.  There are many nursery rhyme characters discussed some in the story.  Here are some funny video clips about the original nursery rhyme characters that walked into Ann's Cybershop:

Steps in a Process Extra Credit

Extra Credit:  We are working to learn "Steps in a Process." Students have been offered a challenge (Bonus) assignment to present a short "Steps in a Process" recipe to the class on Friday.  This helps with fluency and presentation, as well as keeping events in sequence.  Here's a "Cooking for Kids" video that can help to show how steps in a process are important:

Here's another "Steps in a Process" idea.  This shows how to draw a haunted house.
