Class activities for Wednesday, September 21

Spelling: We started to practice irregular verbs today. For example:

  • hold – held
  • run – ran
  • speak – spoke

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

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles; some groups worked on forming questions as a reading strategy.

Writing: Students completed revising conferences today by adding comments to a partner’s writing. Homework is to finish adding at least five helpful comments to a partner’s writing if not finished in class.

The first piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due on Monday, September 26. Your student should be done with at least a half-page draft and looking for ways to change and improve their writing.

Also, students were provided with a colored file folder this week that they should decorate with stickers, pictures, clippings, or drawings. The folders are due Friday. 

Math: We practiced using dividing fractions to find the equivalent decimal. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or something else.

Science: None today due to our reading skills practice time.

Social Studies: We finished learning about other American Indian cultures that had to use natural resources from their environment to survive: the Inuit of the arctic, the Mound Builders of the midwest, the Anasazi of the southwest.


  • Our BioBlitz field trip in Friday, September 23 from 9:15-2:30. Students will need a sack lunch and a blanket (optional). We can take a few chaperones, but please have the volunteer form completed and turned in to the office if interested. There is a slight chance of rain on Friday, so students are welcome to pack rain gear.
  • Have you set up a Daily Homework Time for your student? Consider 15 minutes of math, 15 minutes of writing, and 20 minutes of something else to make a brain smarter!
