Class activities for Thursday, May 12

Spelling: We reviewed common spelling patterns for the /er/ and /le/ sounds. This will be the skill tested on tomorrow’s spelling and skill test.

    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 looked at a fragment poem today, which was a poem of short lines (two to three words) describing a subject. Students also continued to work on their poetry. A collection of poems is due into portfolios on Monday, May 23.

    Math: None today.

    Science: Today was the final test day for the Jet Toy Challenge. The race will be next Thursday.

    Social Studies: We learned about how the American Colonists became angry with Great Britain by comparing the situation to something that happened to us:

    • We had a field trip planned to share poetry at Borders.
    • The office cancelled our field trip, saying that all field trip money must be used to pay for 5th grade camp.
    • The class became frustrated because of this new decision.
    • This situation was similar to Great Britain enforcing new, harsher laws against the Colonists, leading the Colonists to grow upset.
