We are going to be working on writing our names correctly (if they don’t already) and how to leave spaces between words. We are also going to be learning about the writing process.

They will also be working more on place value. We will be doing activities to help them learn about place value and how it can be used in math. They will also start learning about fractions in the upcoming months.
