Grade 2 - October 27 / 2017

WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS:

Both classes have been very engaged in their unit on simple machines. They have been exploring, researching and having hands-on various simple machines to see how they work.

In literacy, reading groups are underway. While groups are reading with their teacher, other groups are alternating between practicing on Raz Kids, identifying problem/solution or working on printing and grammar.

In French, the students have been learning a song about Halloween called C’est l’Halloween!

C'est l'Halloween!

A big thank you to the JS community!
70 costumes collected
64 accessories
100 more kids helped

A total of 312 kids in Toronto received costumes from New Circles thanks to your support!

LOOKING AHEAD:

Next week, the students will continue to work on fact families and basic addition and subtraction sentences. The focus for this unit is to have students recognize the concept of place value. The students will be adding and subtracting larger numbers later in the year.

REMINDERS:

Every morning, the Junior School takes a mindful moment, led by Ms. Mary Moffat-Johansson at 8:25 a.m. In order to help our students and staff effectively practise, we require the hallways on the second and third floors to be silent. Students arriving during the mindful moment will be asked to wait on the first floor with Ms. Faba or another staff member until the mindful moment is over.
