Spelling: None today due to library.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 21-23 are due Friday.
Reading: Today was a reading day. Some students worked on making connections as a reading strategy.
Writing: Today we learned how to make a map of a well-known and favorite place and to think of interesting memories from that place. Students made their own map to “dig up buried stories.”
The next piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due October 10.
Math: We reviewed two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures. Homework is to finish the Searching for Space Figures worksheet started in class.
Science: Students completed four mini-experiments to learn how length is related to pitch. Homework is to finish writing their observations if not done in class.
