Class activities for Tuesday, November 13

Spelling: We identified words that fit patterns for the /long e/ sound: e, ee, ea, y

Cursive: Cursive pages 38-40 are available and due Friday. This is the final week for the lowercase letter review. Check and see how your student is doing with lowercase cursive letters.

Reading: Today was a Literature Circles reading day. Some groups worked on making inferences and synthesizing (combining information together to make a new conclusion or idea).

Writing: Students looked at their last portfolio grade and some students shared their writing. Today was also a drafting day for students. The next piece of writing is due November 28.

Math: Students surveyed the class about a question, made a tally chart, and started making a bar graph of the data. Homework is to finish a rough draft of the bar graph.

Science: We reviewed the Stop and Go experiment about conductors and insulators and discovered that most conductors are metals; however, we did see in class that salt water (and therefore, humans!) is a conductor.

Social Studies: We learned about government services and about the branches of government: legislative (laws), executive (make sure people follow the laws), and judicial (make sure the laws are fair).
