Big Idea: Predicting Change
Essential Question: Why do characters react in certain ways?
We are reading “Come On, Rain!” by Karen Hesse. Later this month, we will begin reading “Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats. You may ask your child the following comprehension questions while we are reading “Come On, Rain!”:
-Who are the characters in the story?
-What is the setting?
-How is the girls’ reaction to the rain different from their mothers’ reaction? Use evidence from the text to support your response.
-Why does Tessie give Mamma a cold glass of iced tea?
Review the following vocabulary words:
Your child is learning to identify letters and letter sounds. We have currently introduced the letters Aa, Ff, Ii, Mm, Nn, Rr, Ss, Ee, Tt, Uu, Pp, Kk, Hh, and Ll. Practice letter sounds daily.
