In math classes we are reviewing the concepts of rounding, addition, and subtraction. See the images below for some possible addition and subtraction strategies.

Reading classes will be spending the next few weeks finishing up with informational texts. We are still working on comparing and contrasting these non fiction texts. We are learning to look critically at the main ideas and determine how they are similar and how they are different. Students are always encouraged to go back to the text to find proof for their responses.
