Spelling: None today due to working on a district science test.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays.
Reading: Today was a reading skills practice day.
Writing: Students worked on revising their novel today. Our current project is our final fiction piece of the year. Each student has a daily writing goal of 200-400 words. The novel project is due Wednesday, March 29. Look below for more details. Your student should be at or past 100% of their word goal; you can check JupiterGrades to see how much your student has completed (updated Friday, but your student can show you their latest count). Homework is work on writing for at least 15 minutes.
Math: Students used MobyMax Math to work on order of operations or fraction addition and subtraction skills today. Time is running out to finish order of operations; you could ask your student to show you if they are finished with that lesson yet. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.
Science: We read about how friction can slow an object down, but another force can balance with friction to keep an object moving. For example, if a car is moving against a friction force of 15, the car engine would need a force of 15 to push against friction and keep the car moving. When the forces are balanced, the object can move at a steady speed.
Social Studies: We read the battles of Concord and Bunker Hills, which were the start of the American Revolution. Students also worked on the Key Ideas, Got It, and Quiz about the colonists rebelling.
