Big Idea: How do animals interact with their environments?
Your child should think about ways each reading selection over the next six weeks can answer this question.
This week’s reading selection: The Country Mouse and the City Mouse
Summary: Creature cousins play host to each other in their country and city homes. These mice may be related,
but as they soon realize, their habitats have few similarities.
Essential Questions: What kinds of animals live in the country? What kinds live in the city? Why do you think
animals are better suited for one place over another?
Writing: Your child will plan and draft an
informative/explanatory text that compares and
contrasts two places.
Grammar: Your child will also learn about
comparative and superlative adjectives (brighter,
brightest) and adverbs (more clearly, most clearly ).
ASK your child to compare and contrast two
objects in your home. Challenge him or her to use
comparative adjectives and adverbs.
