This week: Half-Chicken

posted Mar 4, 2016, 7:54 AM by Jason Brunken
This week we are reading a folk tale translated from Spanish, Half-Chicken. The story tells of a chicken who was born only as half-a chicken. He doesn't die though. He goes on to do some amazing things and goes on amazing adventures. Folktales are stories that began long before written history. We often don't know the authors and they provide outlandish explanations for everyday things. In this case, why are there weather vanes on top of houses? The kids will have to wait to read to find out.

This week will be fairly normal as we study our vocabulary, spelling, and writing. We will be working with persuasive writing this week. This lesson will be very important for the final project this month. Please remind your child to study the spelling words. We will have a spelling test on Friday.
