Class activities for Tuesday, January 5

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive pages 37-39 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on breaking difficult words into chunks.

Writing: We looked at some endings to different Choose Your Own Adventure stories to see what the object of the “game” was and the different ways the game could be won or lost. Students also planned how the reader would win their adventure story and prewrote elements of the plot.

Our current writing project is a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students are writing 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 22. Students should prewriting at this point. Get some ideas below or right here.

Choose Your Own Adventure Resources

Math: We practiced multiplying arrays with multiples of 10 or 100: 3 x 100 or 4 x 90. Students also started multiplication skills at Khan Academy.

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

Science: We reviewed our experiment from yesterday about about states of matter.

Social Studies: We reviewed our last class activity about predicting imports from and exports to China. We learned that the US exports many natural resources to China, while China exports finished products to the US.
