Cursive: Cursive pp. 1-3 are available and due on Monday.
Reading: Students worked on a MobyMax Reading Level Assessment and also practiced reading with MobyMax Reading Stories. We’ll use MobyMax for reading practice about twice per week.
Writing: Students looked at their “Authority List” assignment that we worked on yesterday and chose one thing they could write about. This will be your student’s first topic for a personal narrative. We also started prewriting the personal narrative by making a list in Google Docs. This should be a list of important things your student wants to write about their topic.
Our first piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due Friday, September 20. Homework is to work on prewriting for 15 minutes. Ask your student what they are writing about and have them show you their prewriting!
Math: We practiced math facts using MobyMax Fact Fluency. We also used MobyMax to review math skills from prior years. Finally, we started our first topic in math by practicing place value skills in Khan Academy. Part of your student’s math grade this year will come from skills completed in Khan Academy.
Science: We started talking about our first science topic, Earth’s Features. Today we started thinking about one of the investigation questions: How do fossils get in rocks?
Social Studies: We started our first topic on government by writing about what would happen in our school, community, and country if we didn’t have rules and laws. Homework is to finish the Life without Government note page started in class.
