We will review how to solve word problems involving joining, separating, and comparing sets within 20 with unknowns as any one of the terms in the problem.


This week we will take the Q2 math district assessment.

We will be learning about winter holidays around the world. If your family has a special tradition or family celebration please Email me. We would love to learn about different cultures and celebrations that are meaningful to our class.
