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.
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.
