The Ch’i-lin PurseHsiang-ling was a spoiled young girl, but on her wedding day, she gave a purse full of riches from her mother to a less fortunate bride getting married on the same day. Later, Hsiang-ling was separated from her husband and son after a horrible storm. She found work taking care of a spoiled young boy in a wealthy home. The boy’s mother turned out to be the poor bride Hsiang-ling had helped so long ago. The mother was so grateful that she split her family’s fortune with Hsiang-ling and helped her find her husband and son.

ActivityA Gift of Kindness Do something nice for a family member today. Help them finish a chore or task they don’t like doing, or offer to take care of something for them to free up a little of their time. You’ll be surprised how much small deeds like this are appreciated.

Summary

Compare and ContrastWhen writers compare and contrast things, they tell how those things are alike or different. Words such as same, also, before, although, and however are clues that things are being compared or contrasted.

ActivityOn Your Street With a family member, go outside and look at the houses and buildings on your street. Can you guess which ones might have been built by the same company? Do you see similarities? What are some of the differences? Compare and contrast the buildings and houses as you walk down the street.

Lesson Vocabulary

Action and Linking VerbsAction verbs tell what the subject of a sentence does. For example: I smiled at the old woman. “Smiled” is an action verb. Linking verbs link, or join, the subject to a word or words in the predicate. They tell what the subject of a sentence is like. For example: Wai’s painting looked amazing. Looked is a linking verb. Common linking verbs include am, is, are, was, were, will be, seem, feel, and look.

ActivityCan You Do It? With a family member, play this fill-in-the-blank word game. Write down a handful of sentences that include an action verb—but leave a blank space where the action verb would normally be. Next, both of you should write ten action verbs on strips of paper. Write the present and past-tense forms of each verb on the strip. Finally, take turns picking a verb strip out of a hat or bowl and using it to fill in a blank in one of your sentences. Make the sentences as silly as you can.

2. What do the events have in common?

3. Name a benefit each event offers the community.

The Ch’i-lin Purse

SequenceDirections Read the following article. Then answer the questions below.

Mary had volunteered for a community organization that built

homes for those in need. Mary learned that there are many steps to putting up a wall. First, she put up the wall frame. To do this, she measured and remeasured boards, cut them using a table saw, and screwed and nailed them into place. When the wall frame was up, she learned

how to staple the insulation onto it, cutting around the electrical sockets and switches so that she did not cover them. She helped with the drywalling too. She nailed the drywall boards to the wall frame and learned how to tape the seams. By the end of the day, she was exhausted, but she had completed her wall.

1. Which does Mary do first, staple the insulation or “tape” the seams?

2. What would happen if Mary nailed the drywall before she stapled the insulation?

3. Summarize the steps Mary followed to build her wall.

4. Explain why the sequence of steps is important to building a wall.

5. Explain the sequence of steps in something you did for the first time.

Home Activity Your child read a short passage and answered questions about sequence. With your child, write down the sequence of events that occur at home before school begins.
