Class activities for Tuesday, November 22

Spelling: None today due to finishing a science experiment.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays, so no cursive assignment this week.

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

Writing: We used MobyMax Language to practice editing for dialogue.

Students also worked on editing conferences today. Our next piece of writing is a fiction narrative, due Monday, November 28. Homework is to work on writing for at least 15 minutes. Your student should be editing for capitals, paragraphs, periods, run-on sentences, spelling, etc.

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