Math 5. Problem sets 58 – 61 will be due as homework this week. They should have plenty of time in class to complete homework. They will not test this week.

Daily Oral Language (DOL). Students edit two or three sentences daily in class and will test on some of the same sentences next Tuesday, December 15. Additionally, students will edit two similar sentences weekly for a quiz grade (to see if they can apply their newfound editing knowledge).

Spelling. Every student has a spelling list at their individual spelling level as determined by their Morrison-McCall test results (several kids spell well beyond the fourth grade age level). A copy of their list is sent home in their Monday Folder and a duplicate list kept at school.

Vocabulary. All students take a five word vocabulary test next Tuesday, December 15.

Shurley Grammar. Students will continue classifying “Pattern 2″ sentences and working with vocabulary.
