Helpful tip: Here's a comprehension tip as you read: As always, use context clues wherever necessary. This is a skill that we practice in SS class. Basically, create a "blank" where the unknown word is (If you still can't decode it) and think of another word that would make sense in the blank. This could possibly be a "synonym" for the missing word and can lead you to better comprehension of the passage. Parents may assist with any of the reading. You know your child best!
Scroll down for more sites, including the PA song site. Several links below go along with lessons in the packet. Parents, I recommend that your child visit each link after completing the activity page which coorelates with it.
