Class activities for Wednesday, December 5

Spelling: We reviewed spelling patterns for the /s/ sound: s, ss, sc, ce, ci, cy

Cursive: None this week.

Reading: Today was a Literature Circles reading day. Some groups worked on inferring.

Writing: We talked about bringing characters to life using action, description, dialogue and the reaction of other characters. Today was also a drafting day. The next piece of writing is due December 20.

Math: We reviewed these concepts related to multiplication:

  • factors (numbers multiplied to get a product)
  • products (the answer to a multiplication problem)
  • multiples (more than one product, 2, 4, 6, or 5, 10, 15)
  • prime numbers (numbers that have only two factors, one and itself)

We planned a project to review these ideas. Students were to choose a product, make a factor tree to list the factors below the product, write three multiples in boxes below the tree, and make a smaller factor tree with a prime number. Homework is to finish the plan for this project. Here is an example project for ideas.

Science: We watched a movie to review being safe with electricity

Social Studies: None due to an extra science time.
