Class activities for Thursday, January 28

Spelling: We reviewed the idea that homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently: chews/choose, there/their, fourth/forth.

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

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles.

Writing: We used the following qualities of a literary essay (here’s a sample) to finish writing an example essay together.

  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.

A literary essay will be due Friday, February 12.

Math: We continued to practice multiplying using the standard method using MobyMax Math. 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: Today was a class lesson about physical education and nutrition. Today’s focus was on ways advertising can trick people into making unhealthy food purchases. The snack today was a Tex-Mex bean dip with radishes and celery.

Social Studies: None today due to our reading skills and AR practice time.
