Class News

We have finished the first semester and started the second semester so students have changed home rooms. I am now teaching Math in English instead of Science and Social Studies and writing. Sra. Ramos will now be leading class meetings and talking to children about various character traits and emotional skills. I will keep the links below in case your child would like to revisit them.

Our current math unit is long and we are working on numbers to 100. We will learn how to count to 100 by ones, fives, and tens. We will also learn how to make tallies. We will count backwards from 10. We will also review one more and one less. For example, if I asked "What is 1 more than 10?" or "What is 1 less than 15?" your child could use objects to help find the answer or just be able to say the answer.
