Class activities for Friday, April 21

Spelling: None today due to MSTEP.

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

Reading: Today was a reading skills practice day.

Writing: We talked again about writing using a natural voice and style. Students also continued to create digital slides to display their research. Students will share their research as a digital presentation during our I-Search Conference on May 2. Homework is to continue to work on slides for their presentation. A draft of at least 7 slides is due on Monday so that we can spend next week revising and editing.

Math: We worked again on adding fractions with unlike denominators. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.

Recent skills we’ve worked on:

Science: Students participated in the Jet Toy Challenge today. Engineers from GM are volunteering time to work with us over the next five Fridays. Students are working in teams to build and test a balloon-powered car. The car that travels the farthest wins! Today, students worked on building the chassis and assembling the wheels.

Social Studies: None today due to MSTEP.
