The second part of the unit focuses on time. The class has been doing very well with money. Our next unit is on Measurement.

Reading - The kids have wrapped up their series book clubs. We have begun our poetry unit, the class is reading poems by many authors. The students are learning how to pay attention to figurative language, comparisons and what the author is trying to say in poems or fiction books.
