Spelling: Today was a preview of upcoming spelling words.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 48-50 are available and due next Friday.
Reading: Today was the final discussion day of this cycle of Literature Circles. Groups will soon start working on a project to share their books with the class.
Writing: Today was a publishing day for our class book: If I Were President… Students will be writing final copies of their text and illustrations this week and next.
Each student will write and illustrate one page for our class book, and this page will also be submitted into portfolios on December 1.
Math: We played a game to review for tomorrow’s math test, which will assess these concepts:
- data landmarks (minimum, maximum, range, mode, median)
- bar graphs
- reading and writing large numbers
Some students were given an assignment to work on tonight to help them practice bar graphs.
Science: None today due to a double Social Studies time.
Social Studies: We watched some video clips about the three branches of government. Students also completed a district assessment about US Regions.
