We will review and finish Chapter 2 this week and move into Chapter 5 on place value. Math homework will give practice of similar problems taught at school. Addition Fact Quizzes will be on Thursday's. Students will answer facts in 2 minutes. If they miss more than two problems, then they will try again the following week. If they miss 2 or less, they will move on to the next set of facts. All second graders will learn facts by heart this year.
