Class activities for Wednesday, November 9

Spelling: Students continued to make their Words to Learn lists of words missed on the last spelling test.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 33-35 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on questioning as a reading strategy.

Writing: We talked about using a “BME Chart” for prewriting. This chart has three columns, one each for the beginning, middle and end. Students can list events that will happen throughout their story, helping to guide them during drafting.

Students also worked on prewriting conferences today. The next piece of writing is a fiction story, due Monday, November 28. Students should be prewriting at this time.

Math: We reviewed for tomorrow’s math test over patterns. A practice test can be found on p. 60 in the Math book.

Science: We reviewed the Sparky’s Light Kit experiment the class completed recently. Homework is to finish the Repair Manual activity about explaining nonworking circuits.

Social Studies: None today due to a Reading and Math Skills time.
