Class activities for Wednesday, September 23

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 4-6 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: Today we practiced thinking of curious, open-ended questions. We also read some of our shared reading book, Esperanza Rising.

Writing: Today we practiced sharing our writing so that others can make comments on it. Students also worked on revising their writing more today. A personal narrative is due Friday, September 25. Students should be revising their story by making changes. Students can work on their story from home by going to I also told students that their story can be about a half page this time, due to the short turn-around time for this piece; in the future, I’ll ask for at least a page.

Math: We started to learn about the distributive property today; however, many people in the class showed distracted and disruptive behavior. We working on these things: looking at the speaker, focusing on learning, not shouting out random comments, showing self-control, using time wisely. We’ve had to use some of our recess minutes to catch up math lately, and we may need to again. Over time, I’m sure we’ll get better at using our math time wisely; it may just take some extra practice at recess to make that happen.

Homework is to practice MobyMax Math or Khan Academy for at least 15 minutes.

Science: None today due to our reading skills practice day.

Social Studies: We started to learn about economics today. We talked about how people have unlimited wants, but limited resources, so they are forced to make choices about which goods and services they want.
