Spelling: We continued working on a spelling pretest today.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 4-6 are available and due on Friday.
Reading: Students received new reading books and we read a story about how a queen used her imagination to solve a problem.
Writing: We talked about how writers should prove what they say by including details. If a student writes that they have a secret hiding spot with lots of treasures, they should prove it by telling about some of the treasures! If they write a ride is fast, or a house is scary, or a food is delicious, they should prove it with details!
Students also worked more on drafting the end of their personal narrative. Some students who were finished started revising by looking back at their writing and making changes.
Our first piece of writing, a personal narrative, will be due Sunday, September 22. Homework is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should be finishing with their draft tonight and should have about a half page written.
Science: We wrote notes about how time and water can change land features. We also started reading about fossils and learned how fossils can be created in catastrophes such as volcanic eruptions, landslides, or floods.
Social Studies: None today due to extra science.
Character Strength: We are learning about curiosity this week.
