Class activities for Tuesday, September 16

Spelling: We practiced the idea that some words have silent letters. We’ll have a spelling test on Thursday; the spelling worksheets will be due at that time.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 18-20 are available and due Friday.

Reading: We started Literature Circles today by reading Esperanza Rising and working on writing interesting, open-ended questions (How would you feel if…? Have you ever…? Why do you think…? What would you do if…?).

Writing: Students started making a web of ideas about their first piece of writing, a personal narrative or memory that they have experienced.

The first piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due Friday, September 26. Your student should be prewriting and planning by now.
Math: We reviewed angles and triangles today. Homework is to complete Journal p. 6.

Science: We started a unit on sound by playing a game called Drop Challenge. Groups secretly dropped various objects into a drop chamber, and the other team has to guess what item was dropped.

Social Studies: We started learning about the Southeast today. Homework is to finish the Preview Sentences of the Southeast Rivers/Water WordSplash worksheet, if not done in class.
