Weekly Blog Post June 7th-11th

Good evening Grade 2 Parents & Caregivers,

We have successfully completed another week of e-Learning! 

This week we continued our UOI unit, which is ‘Embracing Change’. It was wonderful to be able to see the videos that were submitted. In reading and writing, students explored poetry and looked at similarities and differences between different poetic writing. They also started writing acrostic and haiku poems. In math, we continued to give students exposure to fractions and they were able to make their own pizzas.  We also worked on irregular plural nouns. 

Learning Objectives: 

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

I can statements:

  • I can identify and write different forms of poetry..
  • I can create a poster to show how to keep myself and others safe.
  • I can identify antonyms and synonyms.
  • I can solve  addition and subtraction  story problems.

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.

Parent/ Teacher Conferences- Last week of school

During the week of June 21-25 we will be holding parent teacher conferences via zoom. We will be sending more information to sign up next week. We will be touching base on your child’s progress. Students will be participating in various activities while we are holding conferences. More information will be forthcoming.

Thanks once again for all your support and effort during e-Learning. 

We hope you have a restful and lovely weekend!

Take care,
