Spelling: We practiced using apostrophes to show ownership: Jason’s pencil. Jessica’s cat.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays.
Reading: Students read a play to practice reading with fluency, including reading with good speed, tone, accuracy, and volume.
Writing: We talked more about using a recurring or repeating detail in writing. This especially works when ending with a recurring so that the ending is circular.
Students also worked on publishing 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 finished and be editing by now for spelling, capitals, periods, and sentence sense.

Social Studies: We read about English settlements, including the lost colony of Roanoke.
Character Strength: We are learning about humility and modesty this week.
