October 15th, 2018
Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: We read a Time for Kids article about the pros and cons of technology use.
Writing: We talked about writing grades and effort. There is a new grade in Jupiter called Total Revisions. It’s a numerical score that shows how many total changes your student made when working on their writing. For the second piece of writing, the top student made over 14,000 total edits, and the bottom student made less than 2,000. That shows that some students are working very hard some and some are being pretty lackadaisical. Check JupiterGrades to see how your student did and if their grade is below average, check to see if they are working on writing every weeknight for 15 minutes.
Today was also our first prewriting day for our third piece of writing. This will be our last personal narrative of the year, due Sunday, November 4. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes.
Science: We practiced making claims and proving them with evidence.
Social Studies: We read about American Indian cultures today.
Character Strength: We are learning about integrity this week.
