Spelling: We practiced writing words with silent letters.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 7-9 are available and are due on Friday.
Reading: We finished reading a story about a talent show. We practiced determining important parts of the story.
Writing: We reviewed the idea that writers should focus on a short time. They should not write about days and days, or many different times. Just focus on the best part and a short time.
Students also finished prewriting conferences today. Some students are behind due to not finishing their prewriting yesterday.
Finally, we started our draft today. We will have four school days to work on our draft, which should be a full page. That means a student will need to write about 10 lines a day to finish with a full page after four drafting days.
A personal narrative is due October 11. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should be finished prewriting the beginning, middle, and ending of their story and should have their draft started.
Decorated portfolios are due next Monday, September 30.
Science: We looked at a map showing different rock types over the US, and talked about which rocks might contain rocks. We’ll be investigating rock samples soon.
Social Studies: We started to read a story about a country with an unfair government and the problems it caused.
Character Strength: We are learning about teamwork and citizenship this week.
