Tuesday, February 25

Last week we had a wonderful week with lots of reading activities. The tongue twister challenge, the poem in the pocket, the parents coming in and reading in their native languages, the book fair! All of these different activities will surely help our students develop a deeper love and appreciation for reading and the different forms that it can talk.

We also had the most amazing time during character dress-up day and we want to thank all of the parents for their amazing efforts in helping their children participate.

Please be reminded that there are no after-school classes this week, except for Chinese class and the normal coaching (swimming, football, basketball).

As always, as we continue inquiring into our new unit, you can visit this page to find out more about our learning outcomes and to see how we create transdisciplinary integration.

Last week we continued going further in our exploration of art forms and the create/design process that artists use. We spent a couple of days investigating how artists express themselves using graffiti and each student came up with their own tag- a special way of writing their own names.

We also are tuning into how different cultures have different forms of art and we began the process of making a pinata, which comes from Mexico.

Also, on February 19th, we will celebrate International Mother Tongue Day. If any parents would like to come and read stories to us in their native language (besides English), then please read the following letter and contact one the G2 homeroom teachers.

Home learning for students who are away

If students are away this week, either due to illness or the high pollution levels, here are some things that they can do to help them keep up with what is happening in class.

3d shapes

Remember: A face must be flat and straight!  It cannot be curved. Thus, a sphere has ZERO faces.

For reading, please remember that students have KidsA-Z  that they can do.

For writing, students can write journals each day. They should make an effort to focus on correct capitalization, punctuation, neat hand-writing, and using description to tell us personal narratives of things that they do each day.

They can use this guide to help them stretch out their ideas into longer personal narratives.

Stretching out a story

They should also think about the feelings and images that they want to share with their audience. The following link might be helpful.

Authors have intentions

As always, they can also complete all of the things on the weekly homework, which can be found here.

This past week, we continued to explore different forms of art and how they can be used to express ourselves. It was really great to see the students taking what they learned about different techniques, and then trying to apply it when they created their own artwork.

We have also been learning to express ourselves through free-verse poetry. We were all really impressed with our students’ work that they shared to Seesaw, and we plan on encouraging to try and explore that medium a bit further.

In reading and writing classes, we have been focusing on the different parts of narrative writing, including how stories are structured, showing – not telling- when describing what’s happening in stories, and how to correctly use punctuation, including quotation marks.

In math, the students have all made great progress in their understanding of the different components of 2D and 3D shapes and have done an impressive job of incorporating shapes into their artwork.

As always, as we continue inquiring into our new unit, you can visit this page to find out more about our learning outcomes and to see how we create transdisciplinary integration.

February 10th -14th – 3 way conferences

February 17th-18th – School closed

Last week we continued exploring the different forms and elements of art. The students did inquiries into painting sunsets, sculpting with clay, and free-verse poetry. We are also continuing to express ourselves through narrative writing and acting out plays during class.

Here are just a few examples of the students working art in the classrooms.
