Class activities for Thursday, September 17

Spelling: We’ll be starting spelling this week (hopefully!).

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 1-3 are available in the classroom and due on Friday.

Reading: We finished skits to review how to handle class and library books so that they aren’t damaged.

Writing: We talked about focusing a story on the best part. Instead of writing a story about Christmas break (two weeks long), focus on just New Year’s Eve. Then focus on just the best part of that night, which would be the ball dropping. Focusing on the best part allows the writer to spend their time writing about the things that matter most.

Students also started drafting their story today. A personal narrative is due next Friday, September 25. Students can work on their story from home by going to

Math: We practiced using patterns to multiple. Students also practiced math using MobyMax Math and Fact Master. Homework is to practice MobyMax Math for at least 15 minutes.

Science: None today due to art.

Social Studies: Today was Constitution Day. We watched some SchoolHouse Rock videos about the need for No More Kings. We also learned and sang the Preamble to the constitution.
