English:  I returned yesterday’s quiz on action verbs and object complements.  Your fabulous grades tell me you are ready for Friday’s test (100 points) covering linking verbs with predicate nouns and predicate adjectives and action verbs with direct objects and indirect objects.  If you missed class today, please collect WS Form B from the missing assignment folder and complete that as soon as possible.

Reading:  Parvana is a brave girl!  We read chapters 3 and 4 today.  Tomorrow we will answer those comprehension questions before reading chapter 5.  Remember to make a prediction before reading chapter 5!

Even with a wet, delayed start to school, we accomplished a lot in the time we were given!

English:  If you missed class, you need to be prepared to take the subject complement quiz and catch up on the vocabulary word.  On your “Balto” worksheet from last week, you should circle a word that answers “what?” after the action verbs.  We are moving forward again on Tuesday :)

Reading:  Complete “Mowgli’s Brothers” and answer questions 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, and 2c on p. 895 if you did not do so in class.

Keep focused and keep up the great work!
