Class activities for Wednesday, October 24

Spelling: None today due to the late start.

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

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on synthesizing important information as a reading strategy.

Writing: We talked about using a double focus in a story. If a writer wanted to focus on summer break, they could also have a double focus of summer camp. This would help narrow the topic so that it is more manageable to write.

The next piece of writing, a fictionalized personal narrative, will be due on Friday, November 2. Students should be revising at this point.

Math: We practiced mental math multiplication today. Homework is to finish Journal P3-2.

Science: None today due to the late start.

Social Studies: None today due to the late start.
