Essential Standards

  1. I can understand tens and ones in a 2-digit number. I will compare numbers using tens and ones.
  2. I can decode two letters that make one sound. I can make long vowel spelling patterns. When you complete Word Work today, remember to work on your spelling words.
  3. I will tell about Jesus’ life on earth as a boy, growing in wisdom, his call to ministry, death, and resurrection. You do this when you learn about the Stations of the Cross.
