Class activities for Thursday, April 19

Spelling: We learned again that some sounds are spelled in more than one way.

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

Reading: None due to a glitch in our internet today.

Writing: We talked about writing facts using our own words, and to have enough information on each slide. Students continued work on making slides for their I-Search presentation. Students will be sharing their research as a digital presentation during our I-Search Conference on April 27. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes; the goal is to make at least one slide each day.

Places students can find information:

Math: We learned about prime and composite numbers today and practiced this skill at Khan Academy. Ways to make this easier:

  • Numbers ending in 0, 5, or even numbers are never prime
  • Numbers made of repeating digits are never prime (e.g., 22, 33, 44, 55)
  • Numbers that are answers to multiplication facts are never prime

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

Science: We tested how the force of a magnet changes as distance grows. Homework is to finish the Breaking the Force experiment started in class.

Social Studies: We learned about how America is a part of the global economy. We trade for good from other countries, but sometimes other countries compete with our businesses causing a loss of jobs.

Character Strength: This week’s strength is love of learning.


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