Spelling: None today.
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due Friday.
Reading: We read a biography about the founder of the first school for the deaf in America. We also started reading a biography of Elizabeth Cady Stanton about women’s voting rights.
Writing: We talked about elaborating and stretching out paragraphs to explain parts of the book. In a literary essay, examples from the book are needed to prove the theme of the book and what it is teaching about. Those paragraphs should have plenty of details so the reader is clear what is happening in the book.
Students also worked on drafting their literary essay. A literary essay is due Tuesday, February 11. Homework on weekdays is to work on writing for 15 minutes. Students should be finished with prewriting and drafting their essay now.
Here are some resources to help with this project:
Science: None today.
Social Studies: We read started researching some questions that economists might ask about Michigan.
Character Strength: We are learning about forgiveness this week.
