Class activities for Wednesday, January 6

Spelling:  We reviewed the Unit 5 spelling worksheet activities today.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 54-56 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some students worked on “chunking” unfamiliar words into pieces and looking for words within words.

Writing: We talked about using parentheses (sparingly!) in order to add information to help the reader to understand the story.

Students also continued to prewrite. The next piece of writing will be a fiction piece, due Friday, January 22. Students should be prewriting by now and ready to start their draft tonight or tomorrow.

Math: We reviewed using parentheses in number sentences and practiced solving open sentences (10 + x = 15). Homework is to complete Journal pp. 71-72.

Science: None today due to library.
