We will continue with double math facts in our math lessons, and we will also introduce doubles plus one this week. We will practice counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's and also discuss the use of a calendar. We have also introduced telling time to the hour on an analog clock and what time to the hour looks like on a digital clock. We will also be working with number lines to show our addition and subtraction.

The students love being mathematicians!

The Friday Test will be two rows - - one addition and one subtraction.
