Spelling: None today due to the half-day schedule.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Friday.
Reading: Today was the Read-a-Thon.
Writing: Students worked on drafting for their novel today. Each student has a daily writing goal of 100-400 words. Your student should be at 30% of their count by the end of the weekend. You can check Jupiter Ed to see what your student’s count is. The novel project is due Wednesday, March 28. Homework is work on writing for at least 15 minutes.
Novel Writing Project 2018
The final piece of the 3rd Marking Period will be our final fiction project of the year. Students will write and publish a novel. Each student will write their own novel, with a word goal minimum of 1,000-4,000 words, based on their reading level (each student’s minimum writing goal is equal to their reading level multiplied by 500). The novels will be written in Google Docs (docs.google.com) to make use of the word count feature. Final novels will be uploaded to Lulu.com and published as paperback books, which can be purchased for reasonable prices. So yes, students will actually write and publish their own novels. This project is based on the National Novel Writing Month Young Writers program.
Math: We played our Multiplication Madness tournament games today. Congratulations to Team 5, our 2018 champions!
