Spelling: We reviewed /ou/ spelling patterns by making words with letter tiles.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences of at least seven words each are due Friday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles.

Writing: Today we talked about how a story can be turned into a poem using at least one of the three ingredients of a poem:

  1. imagery (visualizing and feeling)
  2. music (a rhythm or beat)
  3. emotion

A collection of poems will be due into portfolios on Friday, May 16. The poems will be shared at a Poetry Slam at Border’s Book Store in June.

Math: Students worked in teams to complete division relays today, then took a division MiniQuiz.
