Class activities for Wednesday, January 5

Spelling: We reviewed the strategy of spelling compound words by spelling the individual parts of the word (base + ball = baseball).

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

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles.

Writing: We discussed the idea of saving the most interesting action, problems or facts for later in a story. This follows a 2-3-1 pattern, where more important details are saved for later, but the last detail is the most important. This will keep the reader interested in finishing the story.

Our next piece of writing, a fiction piece, will be due Friday, January 21. Students should be prewriting at this time.

Math: None today due to our Dia de los Reyes activities. We left our shoes out next to our desks, and the “Kings” left us some goodies. Then we cut into our Rosca de Reyes “bread”, looking for the baby figurines. The four students that found baby figurines in their bread get to plan our next fiesta on February 2, Dia de la Candelaria. We then played Toma Todo with wooden tops.

There will be a  math test over geometry.

Science: None today due to library.

Social Studies: We thought about what it would be like to move to a new school in a different country. This is what it was like for English settlers to move to the New World. Homework is to complete Notebook p. 33.
