We had another fun week in TAG!
Here's what we did in class this week:
2nd grade:
Math:Started multiplication unit. Students investigated the meaning of multiplication and how it helps you add large groups of numbers.

3rd grade:
Math:  Continued multiplication strategies with whole numbers
Explorations: Students continued researching their heart topic of choice for our upcoming heart fair. More details to come later.
4th grade:
