Math  -   Our next unit in math is  2-digit addition and subtraction with and without regrouping.  Remember when going over your child’s homework to ask him/her to tell you how they solved a problem and why he/she used the strategy they did.  Please continue to have your child practice basic math facts.  Remember to use the math website to reinforce skills.
