Class activities for Tuesday, September 18

Spelling: None today.

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

Reading: We talked about rereading when things get confusing, and how to think about the sequence of a story. We also read some of a a realistic fiction story about a boy that raised chickens to support his family.

Writing: We talked about the three main details of story writing:

  • talking: what the characters say
  • action: what the characters do
  • visual details: what the characters and places look like.

Every story should have a mix of these details over and over.

Students also started revising their personal narrative today by adding parts, taking out parts that don’t fit, improving ideas, and finishing unfinished thoughts. A personal narrative is due Monday, September 24.  Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes.

Math: We practiced decimal place value using Khan Academy today. Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We learned about a rainforest ecosystem that isn’t thriving and we will investigate reasons why in science in the coming days.

Social Studies: None due to extra science today.

Character Strength: We are learning about curiosity this week.


Our Mission:
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 6th grade.
