Week 11-12 Communication

Dear Grade 2 Parents,

We hope you are well.  As always, thank you so much for supporting us and taking such an active role in your child’s learning. It was so nice seeing all of the healthy and delicious meals during our ‘day of healthy eating’ activity. We hope that it was a valuable experience for your children. The food looked so good I think we might need to make a Grade 2 Family cookbook one day. Here is the padlet link to all of the student sharing if you would like to take a look. Grade 2 Healthy Eating Padlet

This week children thought more about the concept of causation by thinking about cause. Here you can see  how the choices they make affect their health and wellbeing.

In language, children learned about main idea and details when reading nonfiction text. The table structure is one way to visualize this reading strategy.

The Week Ahead will be our final week of this ‘Who We Are’ unit of inquiry.  During the week our students will be asked to show their understanding of what they have learned throughout the unit. They will work to make connections between the different aspects of a balanced lifestyle and our personal wellbeing. They will also work to create their own ‘wellness plan’ with ideas about things that they can do to help them live happy, healthy and balanced lives as they grow older.  We hope that the learning during this unit will lead to student ‘action’ in the form of the development of healthy habits for their future.

Grade 2 Parent Forum

We will be offering an optional parent forum next Thursday, Nov. 4th at 11:00 AM.  We trust that parents will have a number of questions regarding our return to school and how our hybrid teaching model will function. We’re happy to try to answer any and all of your questions regarding Grade 2 teaching and learning, and our return to in person learning.  A Zoom link will be sent next Wednesday for this meeting.

As always, thank you so much for your support for our Grade 2 Remote Learning Program.  We hope you have a great weekend!
