Class activities for Wednesday, October 2

Spelling: Today was a preview of upcoming spelling words.

Cursive: Cursive workbook pp. 18-23 are due on Friday.

Reading: None today due to art.

Writing: We talked about using three kinds of details in all parts of a story:

  • Visual details show what places, characters and important objects look like.
  • Action details show how the characters act.
  • Dialogue shows was the characters say to each other.

A well-written story will include these details over and over in every part of the story.
