Class activities for Thursday, December 20

Spelling: None today due to our Grinch Day activities. We created Grinch games using Scratch, an online code editor and game creator. Ask your student to show you their Grinch game!

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Fridays. This week’s assignment was collected today.  

Reading: We finished reading a book together about Mexican holiday traditions.

Writing: We continued to talk about our next writing project, a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students will write a fiction adventure story with choices that the reader can make. Each choice can change how the story turns out. Students will publish their adventure as a website at Google Sites. See below for more details. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Students should think of topic ideas for an adventure story. We have been prewriting this week and we will continue after break.

This project is due Wednesday, January 23. Some ideas and resources are below:
