Grade 2 - April 27 /2018

Highlights

In Math, the students are finishing up their final review of addition and subtraction. Next, they will explore measurement, area and perimeter.

In Unit of Inquiry, the students performed an ice cube experiment as part of our unit of inquiry on air and water. The students explored various elements that could slow or quicken the melting process.

In Literacy, the students have been enjoying working on their book study and writing summaries for each chapter. They have also been learning how to write out steps of an experiment and how to develop solid hypothesis.

In French, on Wednesday, April 25th 2018, the Grade 2 students went to see Gregg LeRock, a French speaking musician and educator, at  Mississauga at the Living Arts Centre. The Grade 2 students had a great field trip and enjoyed the performance. If your child is interested in purchasing a CD of Gregg’s music, please click here for form and return by Friday, May 4. Grade 2 students also started a new language manipulation activity called, "Choisis le bon (Pick the right word)". The students had to read short sentences about the play and choose between two words to complete the sentence.

In Music, we reviewed and rehearsed various activities and songs that the Grade 2s may show their parents this Thursday. We also learned a Maori circle game with rhythm sticks that involves beat, rhythm, singing, and teamwork as we all have to stay together.
