Class activities for Wednesday, January 27

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive pages 46-48 are available and due on Friday.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on visualizing and asking questions as reading strategies.

Writing: We reviewed the qualities of a literary essay (here’s a sample):

  1. Introduction with a summary of the book and what the theme of the book is.
  2. Three paragraphs with examples to prove the theme of the book.
  3. A conclusion stating the theme and what the student learned.

We also started writing an example essay together.

A literary essay will be due Friday, February 12.

Math: We continued to practice multiplying using the standard method. 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 completed an experiment about using spring scales to measure weight. Homework is to finish the Using Spring Scales experiment if not done in class.

Social Studies: None today due to our extra science time.
