Our social studies lessons will include the creation of the Constitution of the United States, people of the Great Depression, and Latin America country profiles of Haiti, Cuba, and Mexico. Please complete any follow-up work from these lessons by Friday. As always, everyone will also have a weekly quill.org grammar practice assignment and a current event to read about recycling Legos at Newsela.com. Writing practice will include completing week 7 of the "Red Door" narrative writing project (for 4th and 6th graders) and a writing process lesson from Ms. Pat (5th graders).
You will have a vocabulary quiz on Monday based upon the social studies words you were given last week to study.
Like last week, your word study lists will look a bit different than you've seen during term 1. You will have more than 10 words and (often) more than 2 categories. I've made pre-printed spelling lists for you that can be found on the language arts shelf. You can simply glue these lists onto your workplan, instead of having to write them down. I'll also provide you with ready-made sorting card cards to cut apart and use in practice sorting.
Please note that no costumes can be worn to school Thursday.
Have a wonderful fall weekend,
