Class activities for Monday, January 5

Spelling: None today.

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

Reading: Students practiced reading fluency today by reading a play they will perform later in the week.

Writing: Students continued to draft their adventure story today. We also looked at an example story and noticed that each page of the story was like a scene, and each scene had at least two kinds of details (action, visual, dialogue). We learned that each scene of our stories should include at least two kinds of details, or all three.

Our next writing project is a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students will write a fiction adventure story with choices that the reader can make. Each choice can change how the story turns out. Students will publish their adventure as a website at See below for more details.

This project is due Friday, January 16. Students should be working on their draft now.

Choose Your Own Adventure Resources

Science: We learned about how scientists plan and test medicines scientifically.

Social Studies: We learned more about how goods were traded between the Old World and the New World.
