We are working on place value, order of operations, and multiplication strategies.   We are learning classroom procedures, reasons to read, and strategies for selecting reading materials. We are learning about writer’s notebooks and starting one of our own! We are working on reading and making maps.  Then we will start learning about early exploration of the New World.
