Fact Family Songs:
 Here are the lyrics for the Fact Family song we sing at school! Can you sing it for somebody in your own family?

We’re a Fact Family

(Chorus)  
We’re a fact family. We’re a fact family.
We stick together naturally.
We’re a fact family. We’re a fact family.
We stick together naturally.

We’re facts that make a family.
We use the same three numbers.
If you know one of the facts,
You also know the others.

(Chorus)

When four facts make a family,
Two add and two subtract.
When two facts make a family,
Then look for a doubles fact.

(Chorus)
Here is another cool fact family tune:

We have had an awesome first three days! We have been learning second grade procedures and a new hall. Check with your child to see if they can remember what type of line we walk in or what we do in our classrooms during station rotations (learning centers). Please continue to check our blog regularly to see what we are learning and doing in our classrooms. Hope everyone has a great, relaxing weekend!
