Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Students previewed new Literature Circles books.
Writing: We learned that a poem can be written from several fragments (not whole sentences). Here is a fragment poem we wrote as a class:
Getting Ready for the First Day of School
“Get a move on!”
“Catch the bus!”
Grab your bag
Out the door
On the bus
“We’re at school!”
Math: We continued to divide using multiples of ten. Homework is to finish Journal p. 147-149.
Science: We learned about the size, color and energy of the sun.
Social Studies: We finished learning about Pontiac’s Rebellion. Homework is to complete the SQ3R organizer, writing at least one question and answer for each section of the reading.
