Students are also expected to be able to express ideas through well organized writing.
In Mathematics, students will be developing an understanding of numbers, their properties, how they operate, in addition to an introduction to measurement, money, and data.

Chalk Talk: Learning About Commitment
Many times our children want to try something only to decide that they wish to give up and quit. Many times their complaints are so heartbreaking that we surrender, and allow them to in fact quit. This is not a healthy pattern to allow our children to fall into. Whether it is a sports team, a club, or learning something new; if your child commits to participate you should force them to see it through. Explain that since they have committed people rely upon them and to quit would be selfish and unfair. Let them know that if they choose not to participate next year or whatever date is realistic that they will not be forced to recommit. You may be saying isn’t that mean? No, it is called seeing a commitment through and being a dependable person. Both lessons will improve their ability to function as an adult.
