We are hoping you are enjoying the start of your summer! In our last post we listed a few reading programs we found helpful and illuminating to keep you reading all summer long. Here is one more program from Scholastic Books that we just discovered!
awry: away from the expected or proper direction; amiss; wrong
protruding: to thrust forward
sweltering: oppressively hot and humid
viable: able to live and grow
1. Write a letter to someone you love about what you plan to do this summer. Don't forget the FIVE parts of a letter: Heading, Greeting, Body, Closing, and Your Signature.
2. Make your own observations. Save a seed from any kind of fruit you eat, such as a watermelon, an apple or a pear. Give it a few days to dry. Plant the seed in a cup of soil. Place it in the sun and water it daily. What changes do you see happening? Write them down or draw them out.
1. What did the boy first notice was changing in his mom?
2. Why did the boy think the mom was growing a watermelon in her belly?
3. List 3 observations the boy made about his Momma's belly that he wrote his Grandma about?
