Class activities for Monday, November 13

Spelling: Today students wrote sentences for homophone pairs and then tried to determine which homophone matched their partner’s sentences.
Cursive: Cursive worksheets pp. 36-38 will be available this week and are due on Friday.
Reading: None today due to getting new seats. Students completed a STAR reading assessment in the computer lab; the results of this assessment will be used to place students into new Literature Circles books.

Writing: Students looked over the rubric for their last writing piece, and two students shared their writing with the class. We also had technology during this time.

Math: Students completed a subtraction timed test. Students also played a game to pratice determining data landmarks such as minimum, maximum, range, mode and median.

Science: Students finished the electrical conductors and insulators experiment from Thursday. Homework is to finish this experiment if not done in class.

Social Studies: We read about the executive (sees that laws are carried out) and judicial (makes judgments about laws) branches of government, we created some additional Jeopardy questions, and we played Jeopardy using the questions students created. Homework is to finish the Jeopardy assignment from Thursday and to quiz their families on the Jeopardy questions. Click here for the Jeopardy worksheet and directions.
