Spelling: None this week due to the MEAP English Language Arts test.
Cursive: None this week due to the MEAP test.
Reading: Today we started our first practice cycle of Literature Circles. Students were grouped according to their last STAR reading assessment level (you can see this level on SnapGrades). Students chose their job sheet and started reading their new book.
Writing: Today was a work day in Writer’s Workshop. Students should be revising and or editing at this point. The next piece of writing, a personal memory or story, is due on October 12.
Math: Today we reviewed polygons and did an experiment to count the number of faces, edges and vertices of three-dimensional figures. Students also were asked to determine the shape of the faces of the 3-D figures. Homework is to complete Puzzle Page 38 about 3-D figures.
Science: None today due to the MEAP test.
