Candy Interdisciplinary Unit

This week we began our study of candy.  Students thought about what they wanted to learn about candy.  We started in answering the questions right away by finding out what chocolate is made of and how it is made.  Next week we will continue to learn more about the invention of candy and its chnges over time.

Math

First graders are working on developing strategies to solve addition and subtraction problems.  Second graders are answering the question, "Does order matter?"  To answer this question they are learning and practicing new strategies for solving number string problems.  Please keep doing fact practice at home with your first and second graders.
