Good morning,


This warmer weather is lovely, it means I can open my windows without fear of freezing.

Answers to the Mind-boggling mysteries are:

  1. That’s the ticket: He turned and looked at the sign just after he passed it.  He saw the speed limit for the area he was leaving and not the speed limit for the area he was entering.  Unfortunately, he was now in a much slower speed zone than he had been in before.
  2. Other side of the coin: The brothers couldn’t agree on who got to flip the coin, so each flipped his own coin. One of the coins came up heads and the other came up tails.  They tied.

How did you go? To be honest, I thought the answer to question 1 was that the man was driving too slow and got a ticket for that L

Today’s learning is fun filled.



I’m sure you all went amazingly with the comprehension yesterday.

We will be continuing the booklet called “Doors – the world of possibilities.”

Today, I would like you to complete activity 7 and 8.  I love the use of patterns to help with a descriptive sentence.

We have also covered semi-colons for the use of clauses and the use of adverbs (go crazy with the adverbs!)
