Class activities for Monday, March 5

Spelling: We used this time to practice the test-taking skill of matching up words in questions to words in the text, and to words in our answers. 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: Same as the spelling activity.

Writing: None due to technology.

Technology: Students worked on their weather splash screen movies, and also worked on their wiki site.      

Math: Today students practiced the partial products method with two digit numbers (52 x 48). Click here for a simplified version of the partial products method. Look in the SRB for more details. Homework is to finish the multiplication worksheet started in class.

Science: No science today due to art.

Social Studies: We graded the worksheet from Thursday and then wrote notes about the Underground Railroad in mini-books.   

Behavior Update:

  • Yellows: 2 magnets
  • Oranges: 0 magnets
  • Reds: 0 magnets

Ask your student what kind of choices they made.
