Class activities for Friday, October 12

Spelling: None this week due to the MEAP English Language Arts (ELA) test.

Cursive: None this week due to the MEAP test.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. This was also the final day of the MEAP ELA test.

Writing: We learned that a theme, such as a sister’s silly questions, is one way to focus a piece of writing and make it easier to write. Students finished publishing their piece of writing due into portfolios today. The next piece of writing, a personal narrative, is due on November 2.

Math: Today we played a game to review for the geometry test coming up on Monday. The test will assess the following concepts:

  • Recognizing, naming and drawing two- and three-dimensional figures
  • Determining edges, faces, vertices and face shapes of 3-D figures
  • Naming and drawing rays, lines, line segments and angles
  • Recognizing symmetry and transformations (flips, turns, slides)

Here is a practice test, key and some 2-D and 3-D figures to practice. I also emailed these files to students.

Science: Students got a preview of new Science Inquiry materials.

Social Studies: None due to the MEAP test.

Behavior Update:

  • Yellow magnets: 3

Check your student’s Personal and Social Growth grade at SnapGrades to see if your student moved their magnet.
