Spelling: Today we reviewed the VCE spelling pattern (words that have a vowel-consonant-e), such as pine, made, bike. We noticed that this pattern creates a long vowel sound, and also that these words include a silent letter.
Cursive: Cursive pages 59-61 are available and due Friday.
Reading: Students finished up performing their Literature Circles plays today. We also started a project this week to continue working on fluency, voice and expression. Students will practice reading a picture book and then will read to Children’s Garden students later in the week. We watched a few movies from this website to listen to students read with good voice, expression and fluency.
The next piece of writing is due February 8. This piece should be some type of fiction not including any student from our class as a character. Students should be nearing the completion of their drafts by now.
Science: We discussed the “What is Light?” experiment from last week.
