Class activities for Thursday, October 6

Spelling: Students started making Words to Learn lists by correcting words missed on the last spelling test. This will be your student’s spelling words to study for the next test.

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 visualizing as a reading strategy.

Writing: We talked about making characters seem real by writing realistic dialogue and describing how the characters act.

Students also worked on revising today. A personal narrative will be due Friday, October 14; your student should be revising at this point by changing words and ideas.

Math: We practiced rounding today. Students worked in Khan Academy or MobyMax to work on rounding or other decimal skills. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.

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

Social Studies: We reviewed for our upcoming test about American Indian migration, survival, and cultures. Homework is to study for the chapter 1 test coming on Monday. There is a study guide and practice test in each student’s etext at the end of chapter 1.


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