Class activities for Tuesday, May 2

Spelling: We reviewed common spelling patterns for the /k/ sound: ck, k, ke.

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

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles.

Writing: We continued to work on poetry today. We learned that one ingredient of a poem is imagery and visual details. We also talked about using line breaks so that just one idea is on a line, rather than other forms of writing the write from edge to edge. A collection of poems will be due on Friday, May 19.

To finish our information project, our I-Search Conference will on May 9.

Homework is to work on poems for 15 minutes.

Math: We worked on fraction subtraction for a final day today. Homework is to practice math for at least 15 minutes using MobyMax Math or Khan Academy.

Recent skills we’ve worked on:

Science: We reviewed moon phases and started to learn what causes them (the revolution of the moon around the earth.
