Week 4-5 Communication

This past week the Grade 2 students worked hard to grasp and explain their understanding of what a system is and can be, and how they work. The highlight of the week was definitely seeing the creativity that the students put into creating their own systems at home and then showing and describing the steps that made them work together.  It was great!  Our students also did an excellent job this week while sharing their narrative writing skills, and applied some great thinking and communication skills while solving and creating their own number riddles.

Students created flow charts to break down how their system worked.

For the week ahead our students will be working to connect the big ideas they’ve learned about communities and systems. We will spend time inquiring into our remote learning system in Grade 2 and examine how it functions and what role and responsibility different people and things have within it.  It should be interesting!  In Math lessons students will complete their start of the year Math assessment, and continue to develop and show their understanding of the place value system helps us organize and understand numbers. In Language activities we will work to finalize the reading levels on Raz Kids, and continue building our writing, listening and speaking skills throughout the week.

Parent note: due to the fact that we will be using the data from your child’s math assessment on Wednesday to better understand their learning needs, we ask that parents please not assist their children during this assessment.  Thank you!

Please feel free to let us know about issues you might be having at home regarding your child’s access of the remote learning program. Our goal is to make the learning activities as easy to use and access as they can possibly be.

Kind regards,

Jordan, Jessica, John, Nook, Pik, Cash and Pam
