Class activities for Wednesday, September 30

Spelling:  We reviewed the Unit 1 spelling worksheet today.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 32-34 are available and due Friday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on questioning as a reading strategy.

Writing: We talked about using time to focus a piece of writing. Instead of writing about a large time, students can think of the best part of their topic, and write about just that time. Having the right focus allows students to put their energy into a specific time and topic, rather than having too much to write and explain.

The next piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due Friday, October 16. Students should have started their draft or be ready to very soon.

Math: We started reviewing three-dimensional figures. Homework is to finish the Space Figures worksheet started in class.

Science: None today due to library.

The Energy Fair is this Friday. See here for more information about the Energy Fair.

Social Studies: We read about how Michigan helped fight slavery and win the Civil War. Homework is to finish worksheet p. 19.
