Vocabulary

Vocabulary knowledge is critical to reading comprehension because words carry most of the meaning in a story.

Sometimes, just one critical word can make all the difference in understanding what is happening in the story, or what a question on a test is asking. When my students get a question wrong, I have them read it to me.  9 times out of 10 there is just one key word that they either can’t read, or they can read it but do not know what the word means.

Morning Pledges

Star Spangled Banner


Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,


What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?


Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,


O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?


And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,


Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.


O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave


O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


 Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the flag

of the United States of America

and to the Republic

for which it stands

One Nation

Under God

Indivisible

with Liberty, and Justice for all.


Gator Pledge

Polite,

Friendly,

Honest,

Helpful,

Treat others the way they want to be treated (The Golden Rule),

Offer their BEST and never give up,

Respect themselves and others, and

show Responsibility everyday.
