Writing: In writing, we are using our senses to add details to our writing. Over the course of a couple weeks students will have had the opportunity to write with all 5 senses; sense of touch, taste, smell, hear, and see.
Math: Students started a topic on repeated addition. This topic is the foundation for multiplication in years to come. It demonstrates how multiplication is simply repeated addition.
