Homework for the Week:
Writing: The paragraph and sketch portion of the “Historical Person Research Project” that came home two weeks ago was due last Friday. Choose important points from your project to memorize and share with the visitors to your poster. The other facts will be listed on your poster’s factoid clouds. This presentation will be our American Education Week activity on Thursday, November 20th at 1:00. Practice speaking articulately.
Spelling- We are back to our two spelling groups. Our first group will continue their study of Greek and Latin roots. Our second group will focus on word families. You may practice your group of words on the website called, Spelling City.
Group 1: You will have a spelling AND vocabulary test on Friday. Your words are on the attached form.
Group 2: You will only have a spelling test on your words.
Reading- Read the non-fiction article “A Day of Thanks” about the upcoming holiday and answer the questions thoroughly.
Math- Last week we began to compare fractions and decimals. This week, we will look at both tenths and hundredths. Please complete these activities by identifying both the decimal form and the mixed number/fraction form.
Cut and Sort
Social Studies: Make sure you have your map to turn in this week that you started last week. Fill in the map of the Southeast Region with the following 12 states: Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Louisiana, West Virginia, and Arkansas. You kept this map to study from last week. Return the map Friday and be ready for a quiz on THIS Friday.
Also read the article on presidential pardons and answer the questions.
Reading Bingo Sheet- For the short month of November, we are not doing a Book Bingo Sheet. We are each going to choose one book based on our favorite style of characters that we have read about, watched on television, or seen in a movie. Last week, you thought of a character you liked and wrote his/her name on the index card that was included with your homework guide. This week, we are going to use this information to locate books in the library with these kinds of characters to read for November/December. (Unlike the Book Bingo, this activity is not optional.) We will chose these books on Tuesday.
