Class activities for Friday, September 21

Spelling: We reviewed the use of apostrophes in contractions and when not to use apostrophes in possessive pronouns:

  • you’re/your
  • there’s/theirs
  • we’re/were

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

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles.

Writing: Today was a work day in writing. The first piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due on Monday, September 24. Students should be editing or publishing at this point.

Math: None today due to STAR Friday.

Science: We traced shadows on the playground in the morning and at noon to review the idea that shadows are long where the light source is low, and shorter when the light source is higher. We also looked at moon phase charts to remember that a full moon appears once in about 28 days.

Social Studies: We read about Asians migrating to North America in search of food during the ice age. When they arrived, they had to adapt to the deserts, mountains, tundra, or grasslands they lived in.
