• What We Are Learning!

    I am going to try to keep this page up to date so you will have an idea on what we are doing in class. Please always feel free to contact me through ClassDojo or my email (lindsey.pye@marion.k12.fl.us) if you have any questions or concerns about your student, the assignment, or extra support you can provide at home. Don't forget your child can access their student portal and have access to MyOn where they can read a plethora of books that are on their level. If they have forgotten their passwords, please email me.



     Unit 1: Place Value

    Focus Math Standard(s): 08/24 – 09/25

    MAFS.2.NBT.1.1 – Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g. 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases:

    1. 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens – called a “hundred.”

    2. The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones).

    MAFS.2.NBT.1.2 – Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s. (DOK 1)

    MAFS.2.NBT.1.4 – Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.2.NBT.2.8 – Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100–900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100–900. (DOK 1)



    The most important thing you can do to help your child become a better reader is to read to them and with them. Discuss the story with them like you would with a friend at a book club. Instead of recall questions like, "What is the name of the character?" ask them questions about how different characters responded to the problem or even in a story. Did anything surprise them in the story? If you make reading a special time your child will learn to look forward to reading.
