Spelling: Students practiced rules for capitalizing today.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 42-44 are available and are due Thursday.

Reading: We read a fantasy story about some miniature people that live in a library and help keep it organized.

Writing: We started talking about our next writing project, a Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Students will write a fiction adventure story with choices that the reader can make. Each choice can change how the story turns out. Students will publish their adventure as a website at Google Sites. See below for more details. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Students should think of topic ideas for an adventure story.

This project is due Wednesday, January 22. Some ideas and resources are below:

Homework on weekdays is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We read about how a crow scientist learned that crows can recognize and remember specific people. Homework is to finish notebook p. 46 if not done in class.
