Class activities for Tuesday, January 6

Spelling: Students completed the Unit 5 spelling and skill test today.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 54-56 are available and due tomorrow. Cursive pp. 57-59 will be due this Friday. Students are now asked to fill out their planners in cursive, and we are nearing the end of reviewing the cursive alphabet.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some groups practiced identifying main ideas as a reading strategy.

Writing: We talked about developing the inner story in a piece of fiction so that the reader can know how a character feels and thinks.

Today was a prewriting day for students. A piece of fiction is due January 23.

Math: We learned about number sentences and how they can be true, false or unsolvable (can’t tell). Homework is to finish Journal pp. 65-67.

Science: We reviewed which objects from our experiment yesterday were attracted to magnets and learned that magnets only attract objects made out of iron or steel.

Social Studies: We read about weather and climate. Weather is how hot, cold, wet or dry a place is, and climate is what the weather is like over a period of years. Students started a “News Flash” organizer about writing headlines to tell the main idea of each section of reading. This will be finished in class or at home tomorrow.
