We will also be working on double plus 1 facts. Students are learning different addition strategies such as, using a number line, doubles and making a ten. Here is a making ten strategy below. We decompose the 6 into a 2 and 4. This allows us to make a friendly 10 with the 8 and 2. Now we can just add 10+4.

8 + 6 =?

8 + 2+4

10 + 4=14

Science

We are in the middle of our new Science unit on Waves. We have been doing explorations that involve vibrations, sound and light waves.

Have a Wonderful Week!!!
