This week we will be reading the story, Anansi Goes Fishing by Eric A. Kimmel. Anansi Goes Fishing is a folk tale. Folk tales are stories that have been handed down over many years. The comprehension strategy we will be focusing on this week is compare and contrast. When we compare we tell how two or more things are alike or different. When we contrast, we only tell how they are different. The vocabulary words for this week are been, believe, caught, finally, today, tomorrow, and whatever.
**Please study these words all week with your child so they are ready for the test at the end of the week.
