Class activities for Tuesday, December 19

Spelling: Today was a preview of upcoming spelling words.

Cursive: No cursive assignment this week.

Reading: Students completed a STAR Reading test today.

Writing: Students continued prewriting by selecting an adventure topic, then planning the main character, the problem and solution, and the places of the story.

Our next writing project is a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students will write a fiction adventure story with choices that the reader can make. Each choice can change how the story turns out. Students will publish their adventure as a website at Google Sites. See below for more details. Homework is to prewrite for 15 minutes.

This project is due Tuesday, January 23. Some ideas and resources are below:

Science: We reviewed common temperature benchmarks (water boiling, water freezing, room temperature, body temperature) and wrote notes in our minibooks.

Social Studies: Students completed a district social studies test about government.
