December 5th, 2018
Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Today was a reading skills practice day using MobyMax.
Writing: We talked about writing a “waterfall” lead. This is where a writer starts the story in a place that isn’t too far from the problem of the story. The waterfall is the interesting part of the story, and it shouldn’t take too long for that part to show up in the writing.
Students also worked on drafting. A narrative story (personal or fiction) is due Sunday, December 16. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should have their draft done by now.
Math: We worked on two-digit multiplication again today. There are a few students that are still foggy on the concept. Check with your student and see how they are doing, or even have them show you how to multiply 62 x 25 and see how they are doing. Homework on weekdays is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.
Science: None today due to the late start.
Social Studies: None today due to the late start.
Character Strength: We are learning about kindness this week.
