Class activities for Tuesday, September 21

Spelling: We finished reviewing common rules for adding suffixes to words:

  1. Change the y to i before adding a suffix (except ing);
  2. Double the last letter for one-syllable words that end in a vowel and consonant;
  3. Add es to words that end with ch, x, z, s and sh.

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

Reading: We reviewed the final two common responses for Literature Circles notes: visualizing with illustrations and selecting passages. Students also completed a STAR reading test today. Below is a chart of our results continuing from last year and our new reading goal:

Congratulations to the class, who continued to grow their reading level over the summer!

See our other goals at our Class Data Center.

Writing: None on Tuesdays due to technology.

A personal narrative is due Friday, September 24. Students should be revising at this time. Please note that a personal narrative is a story that includes your student. Narratives have characters, plot and settings.

Math: We continued to review square numbers today.

Science: We continued to review electricity topics learned in fourth grade.

Social Studies: We learned that American Indians migrated to desert, mountain, ice field, and grassland environments and had to adapt to the natural resources available.
