Class activities for Wednesday, October 19

Spelling: None today due to the Writing MEAP test.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 24-26 are available and due Friday.

Reading: The final three groups presented projects about their Literature Circles books.

Writing: None today due to the Writing MEAP test. We did listen to My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother, by Patricia Polacco, read from the Storyline Online site. We noticed how Patricia Polacco wrote about her childhood memories, but probably made up some details or dialogue that she couldn’t remember. Students can do the same thing when they write their final personal narrative.

A personal narrative, slightly fictionalized, is due into portfolios on Friday, November 4. Students should be prewriting at this time.

Math: We practiced using multiplication facts to determine division facts. Homework is to finish Journal P1-9.

Science: None today due to the Writing MEAP test.

Social Studies: None today due to the Writing MEAP test.
