Weekly Update: 19th – 23rd April

Hello Grade 2 Parents & Caregivers,

Another week of e-learning is successfully completed! We really appreciate your support through these unusual times.

***Please note that we will be following the Ramadan schedule from April 26th until May 23rd and the school timings will be 10am to 3pm. The grade 2 live zoom lesson is going to be 11:30 to 12:15 Sunday to Wednesday.

Last week the students continued working on their skills mainly focused on reading, math, phonics and grammar. In math, students looked at the similarities and differences between different shapes and were seen using the Venn Diagram effectively.In reading, they learned how good readers not just pay attention to the texts in non-fiction books but also notice the various ways an author makes the book interesting for their audience.

Learning Objectives: Here is a list of the learning objectives for our students this week.

I can statements:

  • I can think about the information that I am reading.
  • I can compose and decompose shapes.
  • I can identify and describe common and proper nouns.
  • I can identify and write long vowels ending with the silent e
  • I can create my final product about my ecosystem.
  • I can present my project clearly.

Ecosystem Research:

Our students have come to an end of the researching phase for UOI. This week, they will be exploring a way to showcase their research. Students may choose to do this through a variety of ways.  On Sunday, they will begin to plan out how they want to showcase their information.  We will provide some examples to get them thinking.  A rubric will be provided to students so that they are able to see what they will be assessed on. This will be a great resource to use for guidance and as a checkpoint.  Students will have two weeks to work on the project. The final project will be turned in on Wednesday, April 29th.

 Specialist Schedule (Thursday):

There will no longer be drop-in sessions with the specialist teachers on Thursday. Students and parents can message teachers via email or Class Dojo for assistance. Zoom calls can be set up by specialists as necessary.

 Counselor Sessions (OPTIONAL):

Ms. Sarina will be running optional parent drop in sessions. You are welcome to drop in on the following days:

  • Mondays 2:00 – 2:20 pm
  • Wednesdays 2:30 – 2:50 pm

Ms Sarina will also be posting a reminder on ClassDojo.

 Learning Activities:

Just a reminder that on the powerpoint you will find a section of must do activities. These assignments must be completed by the students. At the end of the powerpoint there will be a choice board of may do activities for the week. These are optional tasks for early finishers or students who want extra work. A range of academic and engaging activities are provided weekly for our learners. 

 We hope you have a great weekend and get to spend some quality time with your loved ones. Thank you for another great week! 🙂

 Take care, 

The Second Grade Team
