Spelling: Students were asked to make their Words to Learn list today. This is a list of words they missed on the last spelling test, and words they can study for the next time. This is their customized spelling list to practice. Some students are not finished with correcting the words, highlighting the words in their writer’s folder, or writing sentences for the homophones, and can finish at lunch.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 27-29 are due Friday.
Reading: Today was the first reading day of the new Literature Circles cycle. Some groups worked on visualizing and inferring as reading strategies.
Students also received their STAR reading level from our October STAR test. The class average reading level grew from 4.40 to 4.61, over two months of growth in one month!
Writing: Students started revising conferences today. They were also introduced to editing conferences and started those. Unfinished conferences can be completed at home.
A personal narrative piece of writing is due into portfolios Friday, October 17.
Math: We reviewed place value today.
Science: None today due to extra time with Writer’s Workshop.
Social Studies: None today due to library.
