Class activities for Friday, January 6

Spelling: None today.

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

Reading: Today was a reading skills and AR practice day.

Writing: Students created websites in Google Sites and drafted the first page of their adventure story. Our current writing project is a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students will write a fiction adventure story with choices that the reader can make. Each choice can change how the story turns out. Students will publish their adventure as a website at Google Sites. See below for more details.

Homework is to work on writing for at least 15 minutes. Your student should be drafting at this point.

Math: We practiced decimal multiplication again today. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.

Here are some Khan Academy topics we are working on right now for a couple more days:

Science: We read about the muscular system, wrote notes in our notebooks, and started to learn about the circulatory system.

Social Studies: We learned about the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Reyes, Day of the Kings, which is today. The class had gifts left in their shoes by the “Three Kings” and we played a game. The winners of the game were selected to plan a party for our class on February 2.

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