Class activities for Thursday, November 1

Spelling: We reviewed different meanings of the -er suffix:

  • Person who, as in painter or teacher
  • More, as in higher or faster
  • Or part of the base word, as in letter

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

Reading: Students started to plan Literature Circles projects to share their books with the class.

Writing: Today was a work day in writing. Some students worked on editing or publishing.

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

Math: We practiced multiplying by using the distributive property to break larger numbers into pieces. For example, 73 x 6 can be broken into 70 x 6 and 3 x 6. The smaller pieces are easier to multiply and can be added to get the same answer as the original problem.

Science: Students examined dissected sheep hearts and lungs. Here are some pictures and videos.

Social Studies: Students completed a social studies test about American Indian Cultural Regions today.

Behavior Update:

  • Yellow magnets: 1
  • Orange magnets: 1
  • Red magnets: 0
  • STAR Awards: 0
  • Magnets moved this week (goal: 8): 3

Coming soon: Check your student’s Personal and Social Growth grade at ParentVue to see if your student moved their magnet.


Our Mission:
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 6th grade.
