Class activities for Monday, March 3

Family members, please add your thoughts to our weekly blog post entitled, Is stealing ever ok? Check out the article and scroll to the bottom to post a comment!

Spelling: Today we reviewed consonant blends (st, str, ft, br).

Cursive: We have now reviewed the upper and lowercase cursive alphabet. Now for practice, the weekly cursive assignment will be to write ten cursive sentences of at least seven words each.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on summarizing and synthesizing.

Writing: None today due to technology and an assembly. Students turned in a piece of fiction writing today. Students also looked at the comments on their last piece. I told them that they are allowed to use my suggestions to revise this piece and turn it back in on Friday.

I also suggested that they use MrHowd.com Google Docs (every student has an account at docs.mrhowd.com) to type their story and share it with me. I can type comments back and make suggestions. No extra software is needed for the Google Docs word processor; just an internet connection.

The next piece of writing, a persuasive Take-a-Stand piece, is due Thursday, March 20.

Math: We started a unit on multiplication with some practice with extended multiplication facts (6*4=24, 6*40=240). Homework is to complete Journal pp. 112-114.

Science: None today.Social Studies: We finished exploring a website focused on the Underground Railroad.
