  3. 3. Guess the Covered Word Don’t open your books just yet! Write the covered words on your follow along. Think of a brain picture for each word. A Package for Larry I like mailing packages to my brother Larry, who lives across the country. I bundled up some cookies and put them in a box. Then I attached a label with Larry’s address. My mom drove me to the train station. I watched as a forklift carted my package with hundreds of others to a waiting train. With the packages loaded, the conductor, the man in charge, signaled, and the cookies were on their way!
