This week’s story is The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. Revolutionary war hero Paul Revere warned the colonists of an advancing attack by the British Army. Revere rode his horse through the night warning every village and town. The colonists, prepared by Revere's warning, defeated the British forces.
We will focus on some vocabulary words in this story. It would be helpful if you will reinforce the meaning of these words at home with your child. Also, on this newsletter you will find our spelling words for the week. Please practice these words at home as well. Don’t forget our challenge spelling words. Finally, you will notice a set of “Amazing Words.” These words are not tested; however, we STRONGLY encourage you to have your child use these words of speaking, writing, etc. We will do the same in the classroom. Let’s have a great week!
