We are starting to add 2 digit numbers.

Science:  We learned about animal groups.  We have finished our Mystery Science - Animal Adventures.  We have learned how scientists group animals and about habitats. We are learning about plants.  We have learned how seeds travel, what plants need to grow, how plants grow toward the sun, and the best places for plants to grow. 

Spelling:  Backpack page 57 spelling list.

Social Studies:  We read Scholastic News about various topics.  We have compared things from long ago to today.  We learned about Columbus Day.  We read about veterans for Veteran's Day.  We have learned about caring, giving, and getting gifts.  We will compare New Years Day traditions.  We will learn about Martin Luther King Jr.
