Class activities for Tuesday, May 23

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. We also had WEB silent reading time.

Language Arts: Today we wrote together a metaphor poem:

Attack of the Weeds

My garden is a war zone,
The weeds have waged war.
I try to patrol the zone,
But they have too many soldiers.
I attack on Saturday,
They get reinforcements on Monday.
Paratroppers floating down-sneak attack!
Spiky soldiers, attacking my flowers, surrounding my shrubs.
They’ve won the battle, but not the war.

The last piece of writing will be due June 2 and will be a collection of poems.

Spelling: None due to math.

The Level Four Core Word list is an option for continued practice.

Math: We continued to practice dividing polygons into sections and then naming fractional parts of the polygons. We also learned how to add and subtract fractions. Homework is to complete a worksheet of 40 fraction addition and subtraction problems.

Science: We learned that about 3/4 of the earth is covered with water, but that only 1% of all water on earth is liquid fresh water than we can drink. We read pp. 9-11 in the science book. Homework is to complete Investigation Review p. 84. 

Social Studies: None due to Essential Skills testing.
