Reading– 50 minutes of Reading, fill out your Reading Log and complete a short summary for full credit.
Take at least 5 (or more if you have them) of the difficult words that you came across during independent reading time in class today, define them, and finally use each of the words in a complete sentence. This will help us with both spelling but also reading for understanding. Keep an eye out for different prefixes and suffixes and if you get lost, consult your notes on both concepts. This information should be written in your Reading Notebook in the same section as where you put your Mystery Word list and short story from last night.
These words will then be used during our weekly Spelling Quizzes/Review which will begin this Friday.
Writing– complete the following prompt in your Writer’s Notebook below…
“Someone in the class has been stealing money from Mr. Cookie’s wallet. Remember, Mr. Cookie gets to work at 7:30 AM. He works during lunch and she stays until 6:30 PM coaching the boys basketball team.” Think of a 1-2 page story from beginning to end to catch the culprit/thief. Try and use our mystery vocabulary terms to help guide your thought process.
Both the Reader and Writer’s Notebooks will be checked periodically as we move ahead with the Mystery Unit.
Math– 5B workbook pages 101-104. If there are any questions that you cannot answer because you are without a protractor, do as much as you can.
PLEASE GET A PROTRACTOR FOR MONDAY (if you do not have one already) SO YOU CAN FULLY PARTICIPATE IN OUR LESSONS ON ANGLES AND BASIC GEOMETRY IN THE WEEKS AHEAD. Thanks!
