What's Happening in Class
Math: We have been studying place value of whole numbers and decimals. We use place value to compare and order numbers, write expanded form, and round numbers. Coming up next: Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing whole numbers and decimals. We do corrections on homeworks weekly, usually on Mondays.
Social Studies: We are focusing on geography this month. Students will be researching a country from North or South America and then will share their facts. We will be learning about latitude and longitude, natural resources and climate.
