Class activities for Thursday, May 31

Spelling: Students made Words to Learn lists from words they missed on the last spelling test. These are words for your student to study for our next test.

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

Reading: Today was a reading skills practice day. Also, all library books are due tomorrow.

Writing: Students worked on editing their Find It, Decide It project, which is due Friday, June 1. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes.

Math: We worked on geometry skills today. Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We set up plant experiments to test if plants need:

  • water
  • light
  • heat (not too much and not too little)
  • air

We also tested if plants need soil using our class dinosaur plant. To the right is our plant after water was added, expanding from being dormant to growing in less than one hour, with no soil. But clearly it needs water.

Social Studies: None today.

Character Strength: There are no new character strengths this year.
