Students will write a personal narrative about their special friend.We will go over the special characteristics of a personal narrative. We will also discuss special things they have done or shared with their friends.

We will continue with Chapter 6, place value and data, counting up to 120 and making numbers using tens and ones.
The class will be practicing skip counting by 2s, 5s and 10s, up to 120. Please help your child with skip counting by asking them to count nightly. Your child is expected to be able to count to 120 forward and back by 1s.
