After Thanksgiving break we will finish up our verb study by looking at verb tenses: past, present, and future.

Math: When we return from the Thanksgiving break we will continue our study of time. We’ll also review all measurement that we have studied so far (inch, foot, yard, cm, meter) and have a measurement assessment at the end of the week.
