Today you are going to read an article about dog detectives. When you are finished, answer the following questions. Don't forget to restate the question and use proper capitalization and punctuation.

1. What does Jack do when he picks up a scent?

2. How do they train the dogs to find the exact scent they need them to detect?

3. Yee says that not all dogs are cut out for the job. What skill does she say the dogs need to have to train to be a dog detective?

4. What scent would you train a dog to track down?


Here's today's reading to add to your summary. smiley





















Continue working on your vocabulary log. Remember to choose one of the following choices. 

1. You can make your own vocabulary log with paper. Be sure to include the word, definition, a sentences using your word, and a picture of your word.

2. You can create a document that includes all 10 words to share with me. You can type your word, the definition, a sentence using your word, and you can use clipart for the picture of your word. 

Have fun learning the next set of words. We will have a quiz on them in a few weeks. 

Today's Word:

Continue working on your script for your social studies project. If you think you are finished, you may begin self-editing and revising. Please do your edits in a different color font than your orignial work, so I can see what you have edited! Also, Consider the 6 traits of writing we have been working on all year: ideas, organization, sentence fluency, writer's voice, word choice, and mechanics (the grammar part of writing). 

Please make sure you have shared that document with both Mr. Williams and me. I am working on reading and editng everyone's script, so be on the lookout for a comment from me!

1 Peter 2:1

P = Prayer 

Meditate and reflect on if your life follows the big idea of the verse, have you been doing what scripture tells you. Journal why or why not. 

Pray to God in a quiet and peaceful place for strength and guidance to live out the big Idea.
