Spelling: None today due to the half day schedule.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Some students shared their monologue with the class, practicing volume, speed and tone.
Writing: We discussed varying sentence beginnings so that sentences don’t start the same way over and over, and so the reader doesn’t hear the same things over and over.
Students also continued to work on their novel being written and typed at docs.mrhowd.com. Ask your student what their word count goal is and how many words they have written so far. This piece is due March 27. Click here for further details. Visit our Novel blog to check on the latest word counts.
Math: None today due to the half day schedule.
Science: None today due to the half day schedule.
Social Studies: We graded the Three Fires people of Michigan review worksheet today.
