Class activities for Thursday, October 30

Spelling: We reviewed the idea that suffixes change the meaning of base words. We looked at words ending in –er today. That suffix can mean different things:

  • It can mean more than, as in stronger.
  • It can mean one who, as in teacher.
  • It sometimes is just part of the word, as in letter.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays. This week’s assignment will be due on Monday.

Reading: Students worked on a STAR Reading test today.

Writing: We talked about using a recurring detail in a story that shows up more than once. Having a detail appear in the beginning and then later in the story can tie the story together and make it more organized.

A personal narrative, slightly fictionalized, is due Friday, October 31. Your student should be prewriting by now.

Math: Students practiced math skills using MobyMax today.

Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes or more using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: Today was Body Systems Survivor! I asked students to vote a body system off the body. The class found out that it was very difficult to chose a body system to leave the body, since all of they are necessary.

Social Studies: We talked about the tools and reasons that led to explorers coming to the New World.


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