Class activities for Wednesday, December 2

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 28-30 are available in class and due on Friday.

Reading: Students finished the Literature Circles reading day started earlier, and also had a discussion day.

Writing: We talked about making settings seem real by adding visual details to show what the places look like. This also involves writing more than one sentence of visual details–a whole paragraph might be necessary to give the reader a strong picture in their mind.

Students also worked on planning the problem of the story and how the plot would progress.

A fiction story will be due Friday, December 18. Your student should be done with prewriting tonight and ready to draft tomorrow. Homework is to work on writing for at least 15 minutes.

Math: We talked about making an organized list when trying to solve number stories.

Here are some skills we’ve been working on lately:

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

Science: Students continued to work on a district assessment about electrical conductors and insulators.

Social Studies: We finished working on our Market Day website today and also made signs to put on the cafeteria tables today.
