Writing

We're now writing poems, then we'll do opinion pieces, and finally expert books if we have time at the end of the year.

Math

We're doing shapes and time now. The last module will be numbers to 120!

Reading

We're making great progress towards our goal of Independent Reading Level I or beyond by the end of the year.

Science

We just finished Sound and have started on Light. If there's time at the end we'll do Air.
