We are working on Chapter 10 Represent Data.  The children will be learning how to read and make picture graphs, bar graphs, and tally charts.  They will also be learning how to identify the parts of a graph (title, key) and how to solve problem situations using the strategy make a graph.  We will then start working on the next chapter on Three Dimensional Geometry where the children will learn how to identify, describe, and make three- dimensional shapes (cube, cone, rectangular prism, sphere, cylinder).   
At this time the children should also be able to demonstrate fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Please continue using Flash Cards at home to help with this.  Please use the IXL Program as well.
