Spelling: Students practiced when to use among and between in sentences.
Cursive: Cursive pp. 30-32 are available and were due today, and pp. 33-35 are due Friday.
Reading: Students finished performing their monologue passages, reading aloud with speed, tone, accuracy and volume.
Writing: We talked about varying sentence beginnings so that many sentences are starting with the same word.
Students also worked on revising.
A fiction story is due Sunday, November 24. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Your student should have a full page written by now and adding more during revising.
Math: We practiced multiplying using the distributive property, which involves breaking large numbers apart and multiplying the pieces. For example, 352 x 6 can be broken into 300 x 6, 50 x 6, and 6 x 6. Multiply, then add the pieces. Homework on weekdays is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.
Science: Students received new science notebooks today and we previewed our next topic about vision and light. Have your student show you their rocks and fossils notebook if you want to see what they learned about in our last topic.
Social Studies: None today.
Character Strength: We are learning about gratitude this week.
