Class activities for Wednesday, October 8

Spelling: We talked about idioms today, expressions that have a meaning different than their literal meaning (e.g., right off the bat, get the lead out, piece of cake).

Cursive: Cursive pp. 24-26 are due Friday.Reading: Students continued working on their Literature Circles projects to tell the class about their books. The projects will be shared on Friday.

Writing: We learned today to pick a theme, or topic, and stick to it. It makes it easier to write and easier to understand for the reader. Students also worked on their draft or started revising.

The next piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due October 17. Students have been informed that writing pieces less than two pages in length (if handwritten) will probably not have enough information to help the reader understand the piece clearly.

Math: Today was the geometry test.

Science: We listened to Peter and the Wolf to see how the pitch of instruments was used to tell information in the story.Social Studies: None today due to library.
