Reading: This week we will focus on the following comprehension strategies: 1.Use text features, picture captions, text headings 2. Use main idea and supporting details to determine importance. We will be reading “Dogs at Work" and "Sam's Surprise."

## Memory Verse #2

JOHN 14: 1-6 (graded October 2nd)

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house there are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you may also be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
