Spelling: We shuffled letters to change words into new words.
Cursive: No new cursive assignment this week.
Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on chunking unfamiliar words to make them easier to read.
Writing: Today was an editing day. Due to the prevalence of poor behavior choices throughout the day, we only had time to read and discuss a picture book, Scarecrow, by Cynthia Rylant. A piece of fiction is due February 29.
Math: We played a game to practice for the math test tomorrow. The test will assess:
- metric measurement
- decimal addition and subtraction
- comparing and ordering decimals
- metric unit conversion
Science: We reviewed the shadows experiment from earlier in the week.
Social Studies: Students made new minibooks for both the Underground Railroad and Europeans Arrive in Michigan.
