Class activities for Monday, November 9

Spelling:  None today due to student’s getting new seats.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 21-23 are available and due Friday.

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

Writing: We reviewed the idea that all stories have characters, plot (usually a problem to solve), and setting. Students also spent some time prewriting about the characters, plot and setting of their next story.

The next piece of writing will be a fiction piece, due Monday, November 30.

Math: None today due to a practice for the fourth grade musical.

There will be a test tomorrow over these ideas:

  • Data landmarks (minimum, maximum, range, mode, median)
  • Bar graphs
  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Reading and writing large numbers

Science: We reviewed the last experiment and took notes in our minibooks about the differences between mass and weight:

  • Mass is measured with a balance by comparing an unknown object to a known mass.
  • Weight is measured with a spring scale and is the force due to gravity. Mass does not depend on gravity.
  • Weight changes with location, but mass does not.

Social Studies: None due to extra time with science.
