The school will be closed this coming week until May 26th and we will be back to our learning and teaching on Wednesday the 27th. Please note that we will continue with the Ramadan schedule and the whole class zoom meeting will be at 11:30am, Sunday through Wednesday.

This week our students worked on recognizing few parts of a poem and have a deeper understanding about it. In math, we focused on measurement with an emphasis on using a ruler accurately and measuring in centimeters and also got introduced to the concept fo fractions. In UOI, we are observing the changes around us and learning to embrace it and looking at the positive changes. We also want to congratulate the the second graders for independently doing their reading assessment on Raz-Plus.  Very well done indeed!

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

I can statements:

* I can understand different forms of poetry.

*I can write different forms of poetry. 

* I can describe my new daily routine.

Raz-Plus & Matific:

Please encourage your chid to spend 15 to 20 mins. everyday on Raz-Plus and Matific. It will give them the extra practice and also help them revise the previously learnt skills.

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.

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.

I can statements:

  • I can think about the information that I am reading.

  • I can create my final product about my ecosystem.

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.
