I'm working on uploading pictures of the children from our visit to the Hospital, the Smoke House visit and the Nature Company visit! I apologize that they are coming out sideways!! When I downloaded them they were in the right positions! I'm trying to figure out how to rotate them the correct way! Sorry for the stiff necks!


)ur new unit in math is Chapter 17, Graphs and Line Plots In this chapter, children will learn how to analyze more complex picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots.In Grade 2, the reading, analysis and interpretation of picture graphs involve symbols that may represent more than one item.  Children will learn to solve word problems using data they find in the picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots.
