Weekly Blog Post

Hello Grade 2 Parents & Caregivers,

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

Last week the students continued to study nonfiction in both reading and writing. Students were able to share their expertise over the ecosystem that they researched.  We were impressed with the projects that the students completed and the knowledge that they were able to share with each other. In math, students continued to work finding the area of shapes using not only pattern blocks, but geoboards as well.  We had a great end to our ecosystem unit and will be starting a new unit this upcoming week all around the idea of  embracing change.  We will also be exploring and writing different poetry by understanding their structure and features.

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

I can statements:

  • I can identify similarities and differences in poetry.
  • I can skip count by 10’s and 100’s starting at different numbers.
  • I can estimate and measure objects using centimeters.
  • I can identify nouns, verbs, and adjectives in a sentence.
  • I can identify words that end in consonant clusters.
  • I can identify changes all around me.

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 holding a social time for second grade students on Thursday’s from 11:30-12:00. She will have some games, activities, and talk time for the students to participate in. It will be great if learners take part in this opportunity to socialize with students from across our grade level. 

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
