Class activities for Thursday, December 19

Spelling: None today.

Cursive: Cursive pp. 42-44 are available and were due today.

Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles.

Writing: Today, students continued to prewrite their Choose Your Own Adventure fiction gamebook. Today, students used to make a mind map planning their story and where choices will happen.

In this project, 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 be working on their prewriting map.

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

Choose Your Own Adventure Resources

Math: We used MobyMax Math to practice multiplication again today. Homework on weekdays is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: We modeled how a lizard sees and recognizes its prey. We talked about how the brain forms an image and then compares that image with a memory to know what choice to make.

Social Studies: We used this time to make papel picado, a Mexican punched paper decoration.

Character Strength: We are learning about self-control this week.
