October 3rd, 2018
Spelling: We reviewed homographs, which are words that are spelled the same, but have different meanings. This will be the skill tested on tomorrow’s spelling test.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Students read a book silently and wrote some notes.
Writing: We talked about how to use the built-in dictionary in Google Docs to change words into better ones. Students also worked on revising. A personal narrative is due Friday, October 12. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes.
Math: Students worked on a quiz and then practiced multiplying and dividing by 10, 100, and 1000. We also set a goal of reaching 100% class mastery of place value and decimals by October 20. We are at 39% right now. Homework is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.
Science: We wrote notes about how animals grow by adding matter to their body through eating. Homework is to finish notebook p. 14 if not done in class.
Social Studies: Today was a Leadership Lesson. We talked about the three habits that make up the “Private Victory:” these are being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, and putting first things first. Doing these things helps us stay in control so that we are more successful at what we do.
