The grade 2s have been working hard over the last couple weeks at learning how to write letters. They have been learning what the different parts of a letter are. This week we will be working through the entire writing process from brainstorming, to making a draft, editing and then making a final draft of our letters to Santa. We will I be mailing our final drafts to the North Pole. Because we will work so hard on these letters we will be taking a photocopy of the letters for our work folders.
This week we are beginning to practice our Christmas Concert with the rest of the grade 1s and 2s. Our Christmas concert will take place on December 17th in the afternoon. We hope everyone can join us for the performance. We have already begun to practice our pieces a little bit in class and we were introduced to our lines. Each child has a line to say and a line they will have to know to say with the rest of the group. Please practice and memorize these lines at home!
Cam designed, and constructed this obstacle course. He also wrote a script showing off his knowledge of position words and he narrated the video! Way to go Cam.
If you would like to see you child’s video posted here as well, let me know!
I apologize for my poor videographer skills.
The grade 2s did an amazing job singing Imagine today at our Remembrance Day Assembly.
The grade 2 students in 2T have been making obstacle courses for science! We are working on a position and movement unit.
Students have designed and created their own obstacle courses. Students mapped out and planned their obstacle courses. We have filmed or will be filming the students going through their obstacle courses. This week we will be working on narrating our videos using the scripts we wrote and using the position words we learned.
Once the videos are completed, I would like to post these creations on this website to share with our families and friends. However, I do not want to post them without permission from the student’s families. If you would like me to share your child’s work on the website please write me a note in your child’s agenda giving me permission to do so.
We have changed to date of bring your families to lunch. It will now be on Friday. The original date conflicted with the Fabulous Food Buffet on Wednesday. Sorry for the error hope to see you on Friday!
In Social Studies and in Health, the grade 2 students are learning about diversity in our society. We have learned about the many ways we are different, special and unique.
I would love to have some people from our community (especially family members) by come in a share their cultures, customs, beliefs and languages. All different cultures and beliefs are welcome! All that I am looking for is for you to share a little bit about your culture, or teach us to say some words in your language and answer some of the students questions. It does not have to be a long presentation.
If you or someone you know is willing to come in and share, please contact me by phone, (306-236-4491) e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through your child’s agenda to set up a time that will be convenient. We can be very flexible to your schedule!
