Class activities for Thursday, May 18

Reading: We used Literature Circles time to start the Social Studies Essential Skills test. We also had WEB silent reading time.

Language Arts: Today we studied a way to write poems using fragments instead of complete sentences. We wrote the following poem as a class:

First Day of School 

Gleaming Hallways,
Up early,
Confused kids,
Children learning,
Remembering names,
Crazy games,
Missing summer,
Nasty lunch food,
Kids screaming,
Bells ringing,
Busses leaving,
Bus stops waiting.

Students began working on a fragment poem of their own, some using previous stories to turn into their poems.

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

Spelling: None due to the Social Studies Essential Skills test.

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

Math: None due to the Social Studies Essential Skills test.

Science: None due to attending the Third Grade Musical.

Social Studies: None due to attending the Third Grade Musical.
