This Week: The Signmaker's Assistant

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.

We have a special writing activity planned for this month. We will be collaborating with our pen pals in Kenya to write something informative about our Pen Pal Project. We will share our work at the ASLA Expo in April. It should be a lot of fun. 

There will be a spelling test on Friday. Please take some time to review the vocabulary and spelling words below with your child. The Weekly Handout and vocabulary slideshow for this week are both posted below. Grammar will cover the use of commas in proper nouns this week.
