Class activities for Wednesday, November 8

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive worksheet pp. 25, 26, 29 are available and are due Friday. We also had a cursive quiz today.

Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Students read dramas and wrote notes about their thinking. Some groups worked on making connections about things the text reminded them of.

Writing: We talked again today about how to make characters seem real by adding realistic sounding talking and actions. Nice characters should sound nice. Mean characters should say mean things.

Students also worked on prewriting. Our next piece of writing is a fiction story due Monday, November 27. Your student should be finishing prewriting at this point. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes and to finish prewriting.

Math: We practiced using place value to compare numbers today at Khan Academy.

Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We learned about how the moon’s revolution around the earth changes how the moon looks in our sky. Moon phases change in a pattern that lasts about a month.

Social Studies: We talked about how proactive students stop and think after something difficult happens.

Character Strength: We are learning about Bravery for a second week.

Our Mission:
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 5th grade.
