Spelling: Students wrote a writing log entry about their last piece of writing and how they could improve.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Today was a reading skills practice time using MobyMax.
Writing: Students wrote revising comments to their partners about how they could improve their writing.
Students also worked on revising today. 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 and revising done by now and reading to edit for corrections.
Science: We planned and typed a science argument about why the animals in the project area we have been studying are not growing and thriving. We practiced making a claim, using evidence, and explaining why our ideas matter.
Social Studies: None today.
Character Strength: We wrote letters and cards to a boy with terminal cancer that wanted cards. The office is mailing them for us. We recently learned that kindness is what you DO, not just what you say.
