We have started the new year with some exciting units of study. In math, we are currently working on multiplication and are multiplying mult-digit numbers by one number. We are also continuing to work on mastering the basic math facts. In science we have started a unit on the body systems and are currently learning about the skeletal system. At the end of this detailed unit we will be making our own health magazines including articles on the different body systems. We have been writing imaginative stories during language arts. These are coming along nicely and should be so fun to read when they are finished. In social studies, Mr. Hammond has started studying explorers.
