Class activities for Tuesday, May 4

Spelling: Students made their Words to Learn list from words they missed on the last spelling test. This is your student’s custom spelling list for the next test.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays.

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. Students also completed a Reading Mad Minute and fiction reading test.

Writing: We started a unit on poetry. Today, we read a few poems and noticed that poems have these ingredients:

  • Imagery: senses or description of what things look or feel like
  • Music: a rhythm or beat that makes the poem sound sing-songy or musical
  • Emotion: a happy, sad or emotional tone

Poems do not need to have all the ingredients, but should include at least one. Students also started working on their own poems. A collection of poems is due into portfolios on Friday, May 21.

Math: Students completed a math test.

Science: None today due to extra time with writing.

Social Studies: We reviewed how supply and demand affect the price of goods and services. Homework is to finish highlighting and labeling an article about the supply and demand of video game systems.
