This week: The Signmaker's Assistant

posted Feb 29, 2016, 7:22 AM by Jason Brunken
This week Grade 2 is reading The Signmaker's Assistant by Tedd Arnold, author of the great Huggly and Fly Guy series. It is a story about a boy who is a signmaker's assistant in a town. Everything works well for the boy until he gets the ideas of making funny signs. Unfortunately his funny signs cause lots of trouble, and he has to fix the problem in the end. We will be making our own silly signs for the classroom like they saw in the book this week.

Our writing focus for this week will be writing a story summary. Story summaries give the main ideas and a few details about a book in a single paragraph. This will be the first of several the kids do this month. There will be a spelling test on Friday. Please take some time to review the vocabulary and spelling words below with your child. Grammar will cover the use of commas in proper nouns this week. There are some review problems in the handout below.
