Class activities for Tuesday, February 10

Spelling: We practiced identifying words and letters that are unnecessarily added to phrases:

  • The ball is inside of the box. It would be correct to say, “The ball is inside the box.”
  • Move backwards. It would be correct to say, “Move backward.”

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

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on making inferences using clues from the text.

Writing: We talked about our next project, another form of opinion writing. This project is a persuasive Letter to the Editor about a public policy issue facing the US. Here are guidelines for the project. This persuasive letter will be due Friday, February 27.


Math: Students finished working on a partner math test today about division. Here are some skills we’ve been working on lately:

Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes or more using MobyMax or Khan Academy, and to work on MobyMax FactMaster for 5 minutes.

Science: Students finished working on a district science test today about studying people scientifically.

Social Studies: Students finished sharing presentations today about the reason for founding, geography, climate, and government of different English colonies. We voted on which of the 13 original colonies sounded like the best one to move to, and the winner is…Georgia!


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