Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 4-6 are available and due on Friday.
Reading: We read a story about a dragon and a person who had to defeat the dragon with problem-solving.
Writing: We talked about how writers should prove what they say by including details, such as talking, action to show how the characters move, and visual details to show what things look like.
Students also worked more on revising by rereading their writing and making some 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 revising at this point by adding more writing or making improvements.
Science: None today due to extra social studies time.
Social Studies: Today we learned about the preamble to the constitution and why we have a government.
