Class activities for Friday, April 28

Spelling: We reviewed homophones today and finding homophones in several proverbs.

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

Reading: Today was a reading skills practice day.

Writing: We learned about animating bulleted lists on a slide so that the audience doesn’t read ahead.

Students also worked on editing and publishing today. Students will share their research as a digital presentation during our I-Search Conference on May 9 (new date). Homework is to finish slides for their presentation. Students were asked to include at least 7 slides in their presentation.

Math: None today due to the Talent Show. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.

Recent skills we’ve worked on:

Science: Today was the second session of the Jet Toy Challenge. Last week, students built a chassis. Today, they used tubes and balloons to create a “jet” engine. Students tested different diameters of tubes and different weights of cars to see which combination made their car travel the farthest.

Social Studies: None today.
