Class activities for Wednesday, April 30

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Friday.

Reading: None today due to art.

Writing: We learned today that all poems have at least one of these ingredients:

  • Imagery: visual details or other senses that the reader can see, feel, or picture.
  • Music: a rhythm, beat, or sing-songy sound.
  • Emotion: happy, sad, glad, or another feeling.

Poems don’t need all of them, but all poems have at least one of those qualities.

We also read Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening. A collection of poems will be due Friday, May 16.

Math: Students practiced long division using Khan Academy. Homework is to work on MobyMax Math or Khan Academy for 15 minutes or more.

Science: Students planned and started experiments today to test if plants need these to live:

  • Air
  • water
  • food for energy, growth and repair
  • heat
  • light

We’ll keep track of our plant needs experiments with photos in this album.

Social Studies: We talked about how branches of the government can check and balance the power of other branches. Homework is to finish the Power Problems and Checks and Balances note page if not done in class.
