This lesson is just too fun!  We get to hear all about YOU!

Use the SAMPLE Questions on page 138 for each of the 3 paragraphs

***To practice vocabulary – I’ve added a link to “Word Dynamo” at the bottom of the links – not under a specific week.  (I obviously have no control over the order that the links pop up or I would have added this to the top!!)

This is a new link that will take you directly to the page.  Easier access for the upcoming weeks.  There will be a class vocabulary test coming up in Mrs. M’s class and lots of fun vocabulary games, so take advantage of this easy and enjoyable way to learn vocabulary!
