Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 30-32 are available and are due Friday.
Reading: Students have been practicing for the last two days reading aloud with speed, tone, accuracy and volume. Students will read a passage to the class tomorrow to practice reading fluency. Homework is to practice reading their selected passage aloud at home.
Writing: We talked more about writing balanced scenes that include a mix of talking, action, and visual details.
Today was also a day for students to revise their drafting by adding details or taking out parts that don’t fit.
A fiction story is due Sunday, November 24. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should be finished with their draft by tonight so they have time to revise and make improvements.
Science: None today due to the half day schedule.
Social Studies: None today due to the half day schedule.
Character Strength: We are learning about the #OtherPeopleMatter mindset this week.
