Week 20-21 Communication

Dear Grade 2 Parents,

We hope you’re well and we appreciate all the support for our Grade 2 program!

This Past Week in Grade 2 we spent time ‘tuning in’ to some of the big ideas that we’ll be exploring during our new unit of inquiry. For example, students shared their prior knowledge of world geography, and thought about what it might be like to live in different climate regions around the world.  Students also spent time inquiring into fraction concepts, and finding different ways to represent and think about basic fractions.

 

Students tuned-in to the new unit of inquiry, Where We Are in Place and Time, by completing a See, Think, Wonder routine.

.      

Here you can children at school built their knowledge and social relationships through games and challenges this week.

For The Week Ahead our students will begin developing their research skills while reading about different aspects of world geography.  Our students will also be inquiring into maps, their key features and how we use them to help us. Throughout the week we also plan to take a deep dive into the central idea from this new unit of inquiry and play a fun and strategic map game.

Tuesday and Wednesday Online FYI many of our teachers will be receiving their Covid vaccine booster shots this Tuesday and therefore Grade 2 will be online learning for all students this coming Tuesday and Wednesday.  Let’s hope that this is the only disruption in our weekly schedule for next week!
