Question of the Day

  • Jean made a wonderful volcano for her science
    project. It showed all the different parts inside
    the volcano. She thought she could win a prize at
    the Science Fair. Still, she was nervous. She
    adjusted the volcano again and again. She
    practiced explaining it and answering questions.

Todays Read AloudThe Science Project
  • When the day of the fair came, Jean carefully
    carried her project up the path into school. She
    was so excited, the heavy volcano didnt seem to
    weigh anything at all--until she tripped. The
    volcano crashed to the ground. Pieces were all
    over the place. What would she do?

  • Just then, Luis came by. Oh, no! he said.
    Then, without another word, he started gathering
    up pieces and putting them back in place. In no
    time, Jean and Luis had the volcano back
  • It doesnt look quite as good as before, but it
    will do, said jean.
  • Yes, said Luis, but now it looks as if it
    really did erupt!

The Science Project

    when something happened.

Root Words Endings-ed, -ing
  • The rabbits jump. The verb jump is the root word
    and tells what the rabbits do. When we add ing
    to jump, the word jumping tells us that something
    is happening now. When we add ed to jump, the
    word jumped tells us that the rabbits jumped in
    the past.

Characters and Setting
  • Open your books to page 52!
  • As I begin to read a story, I think about who the
    author is telling about. This is probably the
    main character. Then when I read on , I think
    about what the character says and does, and I
    look for other characters. I also think about the
    setting of the story.
