Cursive: Ten cursive sentences of seven or more words are due each Friday.
Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on chunking and context clues.
Writing: Students presented their I-search PowerPoint presentations and received compliments from the visiting classes!
Social Studies: We learned that England took over Fort Mackinaw, Detroit and the River Raisin during the War of 1812, but America finally defeated the British on the Great Lakes and eventually won the war. Michigan was returned to America, and England kept Canada.
