Class activities for Wednesday, October 28

Spelling:  None today due to taking a class photograph.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 15-17 are available and due Friday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles.

Writing: We talked about using choice adjectives to describe the story better. Adjectives describe nouns and help the reader to picture the story. The class added adjectives to poem, based on work by Karen Hesse, to make it more interesting:

Come On, Rain

Steaming heat
Crusty vine
Dry alleyway
Drooping lupines
Dusty path
Drying heat

Cold glass
Stormy sky
Moist air

The adjectives show up before the nouns and answer the question, “What kind?”

Students also worked on their draft or started revising today.

The next piece of writing will be a personal narrative that has been slightly fictionalized, or, in other words, a personal narrative based on a true story. This piece of writing will be due Friday, November 6. This will be the final writing piece of the first marking period.  Students should be ready working on drafts by now or ready to revise.

Math: None today due to Diversity Day.

Science: None today due to library.

Social Studies: We reviewed Michigan’s natural resources. There will be a test tomorrow about Michigan’s natural resources and industries.
