Spelling: None today. We finished up creating our Mission Statement today, and here’s what the class came up with:
Every student in Room 130 leaves improved and prepared for 5th grade.
Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 12-14 are available in class and due on Friday.
Reading: Students received new Literature Circles notebooks today.
Writing: Students made their writer’s folders today. Also, each student received a colored folder. Homework is to decorate this folder with drawings, pictures, newspaper or magazine clippings, stickers, or anything else that can be affixed on folder. The folders will be laminated and used for writing portfolios this year. Students were asked to return the decorated portfolios by Friday.
Math: We started a review of rays, lines and line segments. Homework is to finish Math Boxes 1.2 in the Math Journal.
Science: We started a Science Court case out to decide if the left-handed people in Sciville are causing increased UFO sightings! Students started working in class on the Part 1 activity page, and it is homework if not finished in class.
