Class activities for Wednesday, November 9

Spelling: None today due students getting new seats and team captains.

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

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. In an effort to improve the quality of our discussions, we used the fishbowl method to observe good discussions. Students sat in a circle around a group, and we watched them having a discussion. Hopefully, students learn good habits by watching others and will have better discussions on our next discussion day.

Writing: We talked writing a fiction story so that it’s clear what the main character wants and what the problem is that needs to be solved.

Students also continued prewriting today. Our next piece of writing is a fiction narrative, due Monday, November 28. Homework is to finish prewriting, including planning the characters, plot of the story, and the settings.

Math: We practiced multi-digit multiplication again today using Khan Academy. Students that previously leveled-up on this skill worked with a partner to help them with their multiplicatin skills. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy and to level up on any remaining multiplication skills (shown below).

Here are some Khan Academy topics your students should be finished with by now:

Science: None today. Homework from Monday was for students to finish analysis questions 1-6 on p. 31. Also, any corrections to the last science quiz are due on Friday. Quiz answers can be found at JupiterGrades in the Tests & Lessons section.

Social Studies: We used this time to discuss the election results and to review branches of government and separation of powers.

Notes:

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