Read! Read! Read! Aim for 20 minutes every day! :)
There is a list of 30 words that kids in grades 3 and 4 use a lot, and misspell a lot. I am going to give you 15 this week, and 15 next week. As an added challenge, I am going to scramble the letters. Unscramble, and get an adult to see if they are correct. Now study them. You will be using them over and over....
Do you prefer playing indoors or outdoors? Make a pros and cons list. Write for 10 minutes without stopping why one is better than the other.
SYNONYM- a synonym is a word that means exactly or nearly the same as another word.
When writing, we sometimes get into the habit of using the same words over and over.
Example: He is really funny!
To make your writing more interesting, replace funny with....
Examples: He is hilarious! He is sooo comical!
Write a synonym for each of the following words:
Write as many words as you can using the letters from your first and last name. Challenge yourself! Can you get a 5 letter word? A 6 letter word? :) Throw in your middle name! With the extra letters, how about a 7 letter word??? ;)
This week's Nature Ninja tasks are about estimating, symmetry and multiplication. The STEAM post has you working with fact families using the number 54. Remember, there are 4 sentences in a fact family (unless it's a double). We have addition/subtraction families and multiplication/division families. It is important to use fact family knowledge, because if you know 1 fact in a family, you really know all 4.
*sorry about division symbol! :(
