October 2nd, 2017
Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 10-12 are available and were due Friday.
Reading: We started reading an informational article about avalanches and natural disasters. We also practiced finding important ideas in a text.
Writing: Today was a drafting work day. We also talked about making writing more interesting by adding dialogue, action details, and visual details.
A personal narrative is due Friday, October 13, and the minimum length is one page. Your student should be drafting at this point and should have more than a half-page typed.
Math: We reviewed fact families today:
- 2 x 3 = 6
- 3 x 2 = 6
- 6 / 3 = 2
- 6 / 2 = 3
Science: Today we started learning what life would be like on the moon. The moon’s gravity is weaker, so astronauts could jump higher and farther. Astronauts would also weigh less on the moon. Students also thought about what it would be like to go to a “moon picnic” and what things they would need and use on the moon. Homework is to finish the Moon Outing experiment started in class.
Social Studies: None today.
- If you would like to order a #SchoolEveryDay shirt for your student, you can order a shirt using this online order form.
- Have you helped your student plan a Daily Homework Time? This is a daily (Monday through Thursday) time of 40 minutes for students to work on math, writing, math facts, cursive, or other homework. Maybe it’s right after school, or at 5 pm, or right after dinner. The idea is that your student is working each day on something to make them smarter. Here is a sample schedule and more ideas.
- Check out our class calendar to stay up-to-date.
- View links to all the websites we use in class.
- View grades, assignments, and attendance at JupiterGrades.
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 5th grade.
