Class activities for Wednesday, September 28

Spelling: We learned that punctuation can change the meaning of a sentence. For example, “Oh?” would be asking a question and “Oh!” would be making an exclamation, and the only difference is the punctuation. We also reviewed the correct punctuation for dialogue.

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 making connections as a reading strategy.

Writing: We learned a strategy for thinking about personal narrative ideas called, “digging up buried stories.” Students drew a map of a familiar place and wrote “X’s” to mark the spot of an interesting memory. Then they selected one idea to prewriting about. Students started prewriting for characters, places, and the plot. Homework is to finish prewriting for the next piece of writing, another personal narrative, due Friday, October 14.

Math: None today due to our extra writing time. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.

Science: We reviewed our last science experiment about the story of Pellagra. Students also submitted their notebooks for a grade.

Social Studies: None today due to the Fall Fundraiser kick-off assembly. Fundraiser orders are due October 12.

Notes:

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