Quietly Productive

It was a pretty quiet Monday here in room 19 … but a good one. Our stories this week in Treasures focus on athletes with disabilities. Our journal prompt this morning asked the students to think about how they would adapt if they had been in a serious accident and lost the use of their legs. We looked at this week’s vocabulary words and went over the spelling. We reviewed possessive nouns and worked on writing dialogue, particularly using quotation marks and knowing where to begin new paragraphs. In Science, we focused on the difference between physical and chemical weathering. In math, we continued our work in algebra adding order of operations to the skills already mastered in using variables.

Homework:  (1) Write all spelling words 2 times in cursive. Write sentences for words 1-5. (2) Do “Vocabulary” on page 95 and “Main Idea and Details” on page 96 of the Practice Book. (3) Do the “What’s X?” worksheet. (4) Do “Expressions with Parentheses” on page 122-123 of the math book and “Chain Challenge" on the back of the Quick Review page.
