Spelling: None today.

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

Reading: Students received scripts and we started practicing for our class play, The Legend of Lightning Larry.

Writing: Students worked on editing conferences today. At this point, students should be editing their persuasive letter (here’s a student example and another example). Homework is to work on writing for at least 15 minutes.

A persuasive Letter to the Editor (guidelines) about a public policy issue facing the US will be due Friday, March 3.

Math: Today students continued to work on order of operations skills using Khan Academy and MobyMax Math. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.
