We continued with writing the opinion piece. I did a mini-lesson on paragraphs since I noticed a lot of writing in need of this concept. This website had a good lesson for students so I included it in my Launch Page: https://study.com/academy/lesson/paragraphs-lesson-for-kids.html
Based on my conferences with students, I also will be doing mini-lessons on run-on sentences. What I would also like to do is teach a form of writing called Clarification Writing. This is highly structured but it helps with organizing thoughts and with their writing altogether,.
In science, we continued with circuits and the concept of electrical conductivity. Conductivity is the ability of a material to allow electrons or electrical energy, to pass through it. We tested for conductivity of a variety of materials. Due to the lack of materials, I had to do the experiment while the class copied the data in their notes. Success was determined by whether or not a red LED would light up when the switch completed and closed the circuit (turned on).
