Last week was a short, but eventful one. This past week was the last full week of our ‘How We Organize Ourselves’ unit, and the students worked hard to demonstrate their understanding of how systems can be used to improve a community. We look forward to sharing and reflecting together on the community systems that our Grade 2 students created at the start of next week.
Wow! Work Photos from Week of September 13-15th:
Above is some end of unit work sharing on Padlet. Students chose a system to improve within their community demonstrating their understanding of the central idea.
As you can see, students expressed their artistic creativity in a variety of Dot Day activities.
In the week ahead we look forward to introducing our second unit of inquiry for the year. This unit’s theme is ‘Who We Are’, and during the unit students will inquire into what it means to live a balanced lifestyle, and the different aspects of our health and well-being. It should be an interesting and timely inquiry for our young students.
Attached to the weekly parent email is the sign up sheets for our Parent Teacher Conferences Friday, September 24th. Please open the sheet from your child’s Grade 2 class and sign up for a time that works for you. We look forward to speaking with you then. If you are unable to join us Friday, please email your child’s classroom teacher if you would like to set up a meeting time at a later date. Thank you!
All the best,
Jessica, John, Jordan, Cash, Nook, Pik
