Class activities for Tuesday, November 26

Spelling: We practiced the homophones there/their/they’re today.

Cursive: Cursive workbook pp. 46-48 are due Monday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Some groups worked on identifying unknown words as a reading strategy.

Writing: We started to review the idea that a writer should create realistic sounding characters by adding talking, action, and visual details. Poor behavior choices in class misused much of our work time today. Homework is to prewrite for at least 15 minutes.
