Class activities for Tuesday, November 11

Spelling: Students completed a spelling and skill test today.

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

Reading: Students planned a project today to share their Literature Circles book with the class. They will work on this project for the remainder of the week.

Writing: We reviewed the idea that saving the best fact or most interesting part for later in the story is a good way to keep the reader’s interest. Our next piece of writing, a fiction story, is due Friday, November 21. Your student should be almost finished with their draft by now.

Math: We learned about using multiplying using the distributive property today. For example, to multiply 53 x 7, the problem can be divided into 50 x 7 and 3 x 7. Doing it that way splits up the 53 into more manageable numbers: 50 and 3.

Students practiced this skill using Khan Academy.

Here are some of the skills we’ve been working on lately. These would be good skills to practice at finish at home.

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

Science: None today due to extra time with social studies.

Social Studies: We learned more about why Martin Luther disagreed with the Catholic Church of the time, how a religious war started, and how that caused explorers to come to America.


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