Class activities for Wednesday, May 17

Reading: Today was a discussion day for Literature Circles groups. Students are continuing to work on visualizing, selecting favorite passages, writing questions and making connections.

Language Arts: Today we looked at how to turn a story into a poem. Students began working on a poem, or writing a story to turn into a poem. We discussed how many poems are written about memorable things that have happened to the author, or people the author knew. The last piece of writing will be due June 2 and will be a collection of poems.

Spelling: Today students previewed and spelled some words that will be on the next spelling test.

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

Math: We graded yesterday’s homework and discussed showing fractions on a number line.

Science: None today due to a longer Social Studies.

Social Studies: We got a sneak peak of Michigan’s history by reading Michigan: An Illustrated History for Kids. We also played a game to review this overview of Michigan history.
