Spelling: Today we reviewed long and short vowel sounds. Students have the Unit 1 spelling worksheets (download here), which will be due at the time of the spelling test. Find more information, including spelling lists, by clicking on the Spelling link.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 14-17 were made available and are due Friday.
Reading: We learned today that just because a piece of text looks hard, doesn’t mean it is hard to read. We also learned that tests are written in a weird language, and students who are ready for the odd words (like selection, mostly about, central theme, determine, according to) will be able to better understand them.
Writing: Students put together their writer’s folders today.
Math: Today was a scavenger hunt in the Student Reference Book (SRB). Homework is to complete Journal p. 2.
Science: Students made magnet posters to tell the class what they know and think they know about magnets. Some students still need to secure a poly envelope to protect their book. I have them in class for $0.50.
Social Studies: We made Regions minibooks for notes, and students were given the Southeast Water WordSplash worksheet. Homework tonight is to write two preview sentences using words from the wordbank. We’ll finish the worksheet tomorrow in class.
- Yellows: 2 magnets
- Oranges: 2 magnets
- Reds: 0 magnets
Ask your student what kind of choices they made.
