See our Online School Agenda to see what we worked on today. You and your students can easily get to the agenda from go.mrhowd.com/online.

We had 20 students working with us today! Nice job, everyone!

Reading: Today’s assignment was to practice reading with Epic books, and with MobyMax TestPrep Reading Skills. Reading is at 9:00 am daily.

Writing: Today’s assignment was to continue drafting their novel today. Students should have 90% of their word goal completed by the end of today. Several students are still behind. Check how your student is doing here. We work on writing at 1 pm daily.

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 three angle skills today. Check the Online School Agenda for the skills we worked on and a tutorial video I made. We work on math at 11 am. Our class improved from 13% to 40% complete in one day today! Good job, hard workers!

Science: We reviewed wavelength and amplitude again today with video, then a quiz. Check the Online School Agenda for what we did, videos students could watch, and the quiz to try again if anyone wants to! We work on science at 10 am.

Social Studies: We reviewed supply, demand, and price, then took a quiz. Check the Online School Agenda for specifics. Social studies is at 10:30 daily.

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