Module Outing:

Take some time to apply what your student is learning to the real world. Suggested outings are below.

# Outing

Choose any store, a grocery store, toy store, candy store, etc, have your student identify how things are classified and practice counting what is in each group. They can draw in their Math notebook the groups they counted and identified.
