The first and second grade classes are busy learning about many different things. In math, the first graders are counting money, combining dimes, nickels, and pennies, telling time to the half hour, measuring with rulers, learning the months of the year, and the concept of “half.” The second graders are learning temperature reference points, liquid measurements, place value, and adding four-digit numbers with carrying. For cursive writing, the first graders are reviewing all lower case letters while the second graders are copying paragraphs and scriptures as they can write all letters in cursive now. Both classes are learning health, safety, and manners.
