We are in the book Ghost Town at Sundown (Magic Tree House). I love that it is a west as I said before. And I had so many things we wanted to do that we might have to come back and explore it again.

The activity we are doing is sorting nouns and verbs. This is a great way to explore the words you read from the book. You might have new words and old words you could use.

There is a sorting mat for nouns and verbs. I like to print this mat on cardstock to help it stand up. If you plan on using it a lot then laminate it to stand up to a lot of use.
