Class activities for Friday, April 20

Spelling: We learned about common spelling patterns for the /j/ sound: j, ge, gi, gy, dge.

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

Reading: We practiced reading aloud with speed, tone, accuracy, and volume.

Writing: 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 (here’s the schedule) on April 27 from 10:20-11:30. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes and to hopefully finish a draft of all slides.

Math: We learned about making equivalent fractions using picture models, number lines, and by multiplying or dividing. Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: Students used magnets, iron filings, a compass, and magnetic objects to find hidden magnets in a box. Homework is to finish the Detecting Magnets experiment if not finished in class.

Social Studies: We learned about how economies can change with technology, changes in natural resources, or changes in competition. Those can be positive or negative changes.

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

Notes:

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