Our phonics/spelling pattern is to practice words with str, thr, and scr, and spr.


    This week, we will continue to practice the Associative Property of Addition.  This property states that you can group addends in different ways and still get the same sum.  This will be our first introduction to using parentheses in math. An example of the Associative Property: (16+7) + 23 = 16 + (7+23). We will also be practice subtracting 3 digit numbers.
