We had a lot of fun last week getting to know each other and unpacking our first UOI about Who We Are.
We also began our reading, writing, math rotations, which we will be continuing for the rest of this year. For this term, Ms. Lisa will be teaching reading, Mr. Jordan will be teaching writing, and Mr. Marc will be teaching math.
Learning Engagements for this week:
UOI – Tuning in to how to create an inclusive and caring community.
Writing: Describing what makes a good friend and a caring community
Reading: Learning how to choose books that they enjoy reading.
Tuesday, August 27 – Coffee Meeting – 8:00 am.
Our Coffee Meeting has been confirmed for Tuesday, August 27th, at 8:00am in the G2 classrooms.
It’ll be a good chance for us to introduce ourselves to you and what we have planned for the year, as well as answer any questions you may have regarding Grade 2.
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
We are so excited to welcome everyone back – both new and returning students – after our summer holiday break.
We spent the first day getting to know each other a little bit better and learning the routines that will be expected of us throughout the entire school year.
During the first couple of weeks, we will be thinking about our first UOI – Who We Are – and focusing specifically on the Line Of Inquiry regarding “Creating and Inclusive and Caring Community”.
Here are some images from our first day together.
Important Things to Remember –
Library – Our library time is on Mondays, so please make sure that your child brings back their library books by Monday morning at the latest. It is sometimes hard to remember after the weekend.
Swimming – We have swimming on Monday. All students must participate. The only way to not participate is if the child has a doctor’s note that prohibits them from swimming. Please help your child remember their swimwear, as they will need to use the extra, used swimwear that the swimming teachers keep in an emergency.
PE – All students must bring their PE uniforms during the PE days.
Class 2A – PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Class 2B – PE on Thursdays and Fridays.
Class 2C – PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
If you ever have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to email your G2 teacher or come speak with us in person. Our goal is to be as open and transparent about everything as possible, and we understand that it’s natural for parents to have concerns about their children.
