Class activities for Thursday, September 15

Spelling: Today was a preview of upcoming spelling words. Here is a yearly spelling list. You can learn more about how spelling works here.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Friday.

Reading: Students received Literature Circles notebooks today and we used them to start reviewing some reading strategies. Today, we focused on questioning and making connections.

Writing: We talked about focusing a topic on the best part. For example, if a student wants to write about Christmas break, they can focus on the best day, and from that day they can focus on the best few hours. This way, the student focuses in on just the best parts of a story.

Students also started their draft. The first piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due on Friday, September 23.

Math: We continued to practice reading and writing large numbers today using place value. Students also practiced place value skills using MobyMax Math today. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or something else.

Science: We set up our science notebooks for the first experiment and we’ll complete this in a future science class.

Social Studies: We continued to preview our upcoming topic about how American Indians had to adapt to their environment and use available resources.

Notes:

Our Mission:
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 6th grade.
