Spelling: We reviewed homographs (words with the same spelling, but different sounds or meanings) today. This will be the skill tested on Monday’s spelling test.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays.
Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on questioning and making inferences as reading strategies.
Writing: We finished reviewing Core Democratic Values today. The next piece of writing is a persuasive letter about an idea to improve our school or community. Here is more information about this project. The persuasive letter will be due Friday, March 5. Students should be thinking of what they would like to write their letter about.
Math: Students practiced estimating and measuring using centimeters and meters.
Science: None today.
Social Studies: We reviewed Core Democratic Values. Students will later use this information in their persuasive letter about an idea to improve the school or community.
