Class activities for Tuesday, November 10

Spelling:  We finished learning two more rules for capitalization:

  • Capitalize titles of people, books and songs.
  • Capitalize the names of days of the week, months, and holidays, but not seasons.

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

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

Writing: We talked about making characters seem real by writing realistic dialogue, and making them act like real people.

The next piece of writing will be a fiction piece, due Monday, November 30. Students should be prewriting at this point.

Math: Students completed a math test over these ideas:

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

Science: None today due to extra time with science yesterday.

Social Studies: We continued to learn that immigrants and African Americans moved into Michigan during the 1900s to get jobs in factories, to escape poverty and to look for more freedom.
