Math – this month we will continue to practice adding and subtracting with 2 and 3 digit numbers, playing mental math games and practicing our math facts for addition and subtraction.
Language Arts –We will be celebrating poetry! We will read, write, and share many kinds of poems, exploring the rhyme and figurative language that makes poetry so interesting.
Earth Day is this month and we will be learning about the systems that make our planet different from other planets. The children have already made friends whose hair is alive (and edible!) We will look at different types of maps and globes to learn about the continents and oceans.
Important dates to remember:

They are not only prepared for a middle school setting; they are “ready” in every sense.
