The students will have the chance to try to measure things with different tools. The students will be able to discuss what types of things they can measure with the different units.

Reading

This month, we are focusing on finding books for each student to read with ease and enjoyment. Our focus will be on the plot of the story, setting, and characters. The students will have the opportunity to do a creative project to show their understanding on those three main things in class and at home.
