Practice identifying numbers from 1-20.  We will recognize, count, and order numbers.  Practice finding numbers before, between, and right after.  We are learning about ordinal positions 1st – 10th.

We are building addition sentences with sums up to 12.  The two numbers being added are called addends.  The answer you get when adding is called the sum.

Social Studies-

History tells the story of our past.  We grow and change over time.  We are comparing our lives now with life in the past.

Science-

Scientists learn about how things in our world work.  We are exploring how scientists learn and how we learn.  We use our senses to learn.  We ask questions and record answers.
