We like to read rhyming books. We like reading about animals. We like to read mystery books and books in book clubs. We like to read adventure books and learning hard words. Sometimes we learn new words, for example, any word that we don't know. We like to learn new words and how to spell. We read every day.

Our class is sometimes loud and sometimes quiet. We all like playing outside. My class makes me happy.
In math, we are learning several things like quadrilaterals and we also learned about time. Like 30 minutes back, 5 minutes back, etc. We have also learned about money and class economy. My favorite topic was when we were learning about money. It inspired me to earn something. I also felt excited about most of the things I learned in math.
We figure out equations. One strategy we use is to combine numbers. Like 4 + 11 = 15. Combine the 4 +1 and you get 5. Then 5 + 10 = 15.
We have learned in Dreambox on a big number line and you have to match the size of the box. There are timer and money equations. We earn lots of coins in Dreambox.
