Weekly Blog Post Update

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 until May 23rd and the school timings will be 10am to 3pm. The grade 2 live zoom lessons are 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, we looked at finding the area of a shape using geometric shapes. In reading, they learned how good readers stop and ask questions when they read to better understand the text. Students finished their ecosystem project and created something to show what they have learned.

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

I can statements:

  • I can find the area of a shape.
  • I can identify and describe verbs and adverbs
  • I can identify and write words with a double consonant.
  • I can answer questions about a nonfiction text. 
  • I can share the information I have learned about my ecosystem.

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
