    point- an exact location in space

    line- a straight path of points that continues without end in both directions

    line segment- a part of a line between two endpoints

    ray- a part of a line, with one endpoint, that is straight and continues in one direction

    angle- formed by two rays or line segments that have the same endpoint; the shared endpoint is called the vertex

    acute angle- an angle that has a measure less than a right angle

    right angle- an angle that forms a square corner and has a measure of 90˚

    straight angle- an angle in which two rays point in opposite directions so that they form a line (180˚)

    obtuse angle- an angle that has a measure greater than a right angle

    acute triangle- a triangle with three acute angles

    right triangle- a triangle with one right angle

    obtuse triangle- a triangle with one obtuse angle

    line symmetry- what a shape has if it can be folded about a line so that its two parts match exactly

    line of symmetry- an imaginary line that divides a shape into two congruent parts

    intersecting lines- lines in a plane that cross at exactly one point; intersecting lines form four angles

    parallel lines- lines in a plane that are always the same distance apart; parallel lines never intersect

    perpendicular lines- lines in a plane that intersect and form four right angles

    trapezoid- 1 pair of parallel sides

    parallelogram- 2 pairs of parallel sides; 2 pairs of sides of equal length

    6. metamorphic: rock that has been changed by heat or pressure
    7. luster: how light reflects off a mineral’s surface
    8. streak: the color of a mineral in powdered form

    SPELLING

    No new words this week

                  

    ********************************** 

    JOURNAL & HANDWRITING

    1. Journal:  Daily, students will write at least five complete and interesting sentences to a given prompt.  They will be graded on their focus, organization, support, and conventions.
    2. Handwriting:  Once we have finished learning all cursive letters, students will practice through spelling and select classroom assignments.  FYI:  Their trace-and-copy cursive papers are highlighted based on how they are forming their letters.  The following are some of the reasons their words may get highlighted:  for going above or below the lines; not retracing over their lines, but instead forming a loop where there shouldn’t be one; not dotting i’s or crossing t’s; picking up the pencil and making stray marks that make the letters look “hairy”; not slanting their letters properly, etc.  They have been told to look at my example and trace it before writing their own. They may retrace my example as many times as needed in order to get the right feel of the letter(s).
