MATH
We are in the process of counting up to 100. We will start by counting to 50 and work our way up to 100. We will also begin counting to 100 by 10s. I am also starting to introduce telling time on the top of the hour to the children.

SCIENCE/SOCIAL STUDIES
For science we are going to examine dinosaurs in the classroom by reading stories, discussing different types of dinosaurs, and exploring the history of dinosaurs.
For social studies, the children will learn the difference between a continent, country, state, and a city.
