Class activities for Tuesday, February 4

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive workbook pp. 66-68 are due Friday.

Reading: Students started working on Reader’s Theatre plays to share their Literature Circles books with the class.

Writing: We talked about how to explain how a part of a book matches with the theme of the story. Students could do this in their essays by writing about an event in the book, then staying, “This part shows…” and then continue to connect the event to the theme.

Students continued to draft or revise their literary essay. Here are the main parts of a literary essay:

  1. Introduction with the name of the book, summary, and the theme of the book
  2. At least three examples from the book that support and prove the theme
  3. A conclusion that restates the theme and what can be learned from the book

A literary essay is due Friday, February 7. Students should be ready to revise their essay at this point.

Math: Today was a math work day in MobyMax Math.

Science: Students practiced measuring weight using a spring scale. We learned that weight is the measure of the force of gravity on an object. Homework is to finish the Using Spring Scales activity if not done in class.

Social Studies: Students completed a MiniQuiz today about changing economies and global competition. We also started learning about public goods and services.
