After we take our test this week, we will begin our next math unit.

In this unit we will work on:

  • place value
  • adding and subtracting tens and two digit numbers (without regrouping)
  • number grid puzzles
  • fractions


We will be finishing up the year in writing with poetry!

This is usually one of the students' favorite kind of writing because there are NO RULES!
