Class activities for Wednesday, March 11

Spelling: We finished reviewing rules for adding suffixes onto base words.

Cursive: Ten cursive sentences, seven or more words each, are due on Fridays.

Reading: None today due to the late start.

Writing: Students also continued to draft their novel today. Students should have 50% of their word goal completed by tonight. The class average is 41%. Several students are behind, but many have made good progress by working at home.

The novel project is due Wednesday, March 25. Homework is to work on writing for at least 15 minutes daily during the week.

Novel Writing Project 2020

The final piece of the 3rd Marking Period will be our final fiction project of the year. Students will write and publish their own novel! Each student will write their own novel, with a word goal minimum of 1,000-3,000 words, based on their reading level (each student’s minimum writing goal is equal to their reading level multiplied by 500). The novels will be written in Google Docs (docs.google.com) to make use of the word count feature. Final novels will be uploaded to Lulu.com and published as paperback books, which can be purchased for reasonable prices. So yes, students will actually write and publish their own novels. This project is based on the National Novel Writing Month Young Writers program.

Math: We practiced dividing using the partial quotients method today. Homework on weekdays is to practice math for 15 minutes using MobyMax or Khan Academy.

Science: None today due to the late start.

Social Studies: Students completed a market economy MiniQuiz. Then we started to learn about how supply, demand, and competition affect price.

Character Strength: We are learning about social intelligence this week.

Notes:

Our Mission:
All students in Room 130 will do their best and get ready for 5th grade.
