October 12th, 2018
Spelling: None on Fridays. We used this time to work on our digital Leadership Notebooks. We worked on listing our favorites and then created reading goals for the rest of October. Students that meet there goal will earn a BookIt certificate for a free personal pizza. Students received a paper calendar to track their daily progress.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Today was a reading day in Literature Circles. Students wrote notes about their reading today.
Writing: Today was our last class publishing day for this piece of writing. We also talked about when to add a section break in a story (a section break is a skipped line between paragraphs). A section break is for large changes in time and place, so it shouldn’t be used after each paragraph. A personal narrative is due Sunday, October 14. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes and to finish publishing this piece of writing by Sunday.
Science: We talked about how scientists could use a food web to study the health of organisms in an ecosystem. We also modeled a food web.
Social Studies: We worked on the Lesson 1.2 Key Ideas, Got It, and Quiz about how American Indians adapted to their environments. Homework is to finish this if not done in class.
Character Strength: We are learning about looking for the good in others this week.
