Class activities for Wednesday, February 1

Spelling: None today due to the late start day.

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

Reading: Several students performed their monologue today, focusing on reading aloud with speed, tone, accuracy and volume.

Writing: Students worked on prewriting conferences today and prewriting for their own essay. As a class, we appear to be behind schedule with prewriting. Many students have not finished planning their essay. Hopefully students will finish prewriting tonight so they can start their draft tomorrow.

literary essay (here’s our example essay) will be due Friday, February 10. Homework is to finish prewriting the essay.

Science: We practiced thinking about how body systems work together.

Social Studies: Today was a reading skills and AR practice day.
