Class activities for Friday, May 13

Spelling: Students completed a spelling and skill test today.

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

    Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles.

    Writing: We talked about using whitespace in poems: space around the words so the reader sees certain words rather than just writing to the edge of the page.

    Students also continued to work on their poetry today. A collection of poems is due into portfolios on Monday, May 23.

    Math: None due to STAR Friday.

    Science: Students worked on an experiment about balanced and unbalanced forces. Homework is to finish Activity 81 and the analysis.

    Social Studies: None today.
