Class activities for Tuesday, September 25

Spelling: We reviewed homographs, which are words that are spelled the same, but have different means and sometimes are pronounced differently. Can you read these homographs correctly the first time?

  • Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present .
  • bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
  • When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
  • I did not object to the object.
  • The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
  • There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.
  • They were too close to the door to close it.
  • The buck does funny things when the does are present.

Here are more homophones!

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

Reading: We started to read a new realistic fiction story about scavenger hunt.

Writing: We talked about how to make a list during prewriting. One way is to make a list of the people, places, and plot of the story. Those are the three main ingredients of any story. Students also worked on their prewriting. A personal narrative is due Friday, October 12.  Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes.

Math: None today due to a reading assessment time. Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We read more about how animals eat matter and use that to grow their bodies, make energy, and get rid of wastes.

Social Studies: We read about the Mayans, Aztecs, Mound Builders and Anasazi civilizations.

Character Strength: We are learning about teamwork this week.

Notes:

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