Math - We will continue our measurement unit. Students will be continue exploring how to use inches and feet. Students will also begin to use centimeters and meters.
MGSE2.MD.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
MGSE2.MD.2 Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen. Understand the relative size of units in different systems of measurement. For example, an inch is longer than a centimeter. (Students are not expected to convert between systems of measurement)
MGSE2.MD.3 Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
MGSE2.MD.4 Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
In math stations we will review: Place Value, Addition, and Subtraction
