Class activities for Wednesday, November 17 and Wednesday, November 18

Spelling: We talked about “ditching” words that are unnecessary in sentences:

  • Move backward, not…Move backwards.
  • Until then, I was fine. Not…Up until then, I was fine.
  • I don’t know whether I’ll eat yogurt or pancakes, not…if I’ll eat or whether or not I’ll eat.

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

Reading: The class finished their Literature Circles books this week. Students will next be creating projects to share their books with the class.

Writing: We talked about not combining multiple sentences into one chunk of run-on sentences. Putting periods in between, and taking out connecting words helps to make individual sentences.

Our next piece of writing, a fiction piece, is due Monday, November 29. Students should be revising at this time.

Math: We have been working on drawing and measuring angles using a protractor.

Science: We reviewed inherited traits and started to learning about learned traits that aren’t acquired from parents.

Social Studies: We will be having a test over European Explorers soon. Here’s an online study guide.
