Class activities for Monday, November 30

Spelling:  None today. We used this time to discuss our school’s Friends in Service Here (FISH) program, which locates families in need and helps them to provide a good Christmas to their children. Our class has been asked to donate gifts for a six-year old boy. A letter went home last week. Today, students volunteered to bring in presents based on his wish list. We’ll wrap them next week.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 27, 28 and 47 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: None today due to planning our FISH program donations.

Writing: Students started prewriting for their next piece of fiction. Students were also notified that they can turn in their current fiction piece tomorrow.

The next piece of writing will be a fiction piece, due Friday, December 18. Students should be prewriting by now.

Math: We reviewed the relationship between multiplication and division today.

Science: Students made a magnet minibook today. A test over these ideas will be tomorrow:

  • Forms of energy (electrical, sound, light, heat, food, motion)
  • States of matter (solid, liquid, gas)
  • Measuring matter (weight, mass, volume)
  • Measuring tools (balance, spring scale, graduated cylinder)
  • Changes in states of matter (melting, evaporation, condensation, freezing)

Social Studies: We reviewed threats to Michigan’s natural resources and how we can protect them.
