Reading We are beginning Unit 3 with our reading curriculum and students will study how animals adapt to their environment.
Math We are working on skip counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, and 100s up to 1,000. We will also be identifying numbers that are 10 more, 10 less, 100 more, and 100 less. Students can get extra math practice at home by logging into Ten Marks. I shared about it in an Instagram video last week.
