Class activities for Friday, October 4

Spelling: None today due to the half day schedule.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 10-12 are available and were due today.

Reading: None today due to the half day schedule.

Writing: We talked about a stylistic trick in writing about the order of details. Before a character is described visually, it is good to add some action or talking. Make the character talk or make them do some action before you describe what they look like. This helps the reader to understand who this character is and why they should care about them.

Students continued to work on revising today. This is the time to add details (talking, action, visual details), take out parts that don’t fit or aren’t focused on the topic, finish unfinished thoughts, and improve the writing.

A personal narrative is due October 11. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should be revising by now.

Math: None today due to the half day schedule. Homework on weekdays is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: None today due to the half day schedule.

Social Studies: We wrote notes about how a fictional government compared to the US government in individual rights, freedoms, rule of law, common good, and if the government was a republic.

Character Strength: We are learning about open-mindedness this week.

Today was the kickoff for our annual Fun Run Fundraiser:

The Nest – Fun Run Fundraiser 2019

This video is about My Movie 1

Notes:

Our Mission:
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 5th grade.
