Class activities for Monday, February 26

Spelling: Today we reviewed compound words and vowel sounds. The unit 8 worksheets are available here.

Cursive: We have reviewed the entire alphabet, upper and lower case. From now on, the weekly cursive assignment will be to write 10 cursive sentences of 7 or more words each. This assignment will be due Friday. 

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. Some groups practiced looking back into the text to confirm predictions.

Writing: None today due to technology. Students should be close to finished with revising and ready to start editing for their next piece of writing, due this Friday, March 2.    

Technology: Students worked on their weather splash screen movies, and also created their own wiki, which is a quick and easy website that anyone can edit.  

Math: We practiced estimating sums in the context of a road trip. Homework is to finish journal pp. 120-121.

Science: Students put to work their knowledge of light moving only in straight lines by creating laser mazes.

Social Studies: We sang and listened to some songs about the Underground Railroad and learned that many songs contained coded messages for helping slaves to escape.  

Behavior Update:

  • Yellows: 1 magnet
  • Oranges: 0 magnets
  • Reds: 0 magnets

Ask your student what kind of choices they made.
