This week in the Wonders program we will investigate the question, “What do heroes do?” Students will continue to practice summarizing stories as they read about people who changed the world. As well, we will study the spelling patterns that make the oo sound as in the word moo. I will also introduce the students to idioms this week.
In Math this week, we continue to focus on measurement and data. In second grade, students are expected to be able to measure to the nearest half inch and identify that a centimeter is smaller than an inch. As well, students are expected to organize data in order, represent data as a graph or line plot, and answer questions using data. We continue to practice these skills as we collect, graph, and analyze data this week.
We are wrapping up our realistic fiction stories this week, and celebrating all the hard work we did! As well, students are working on writing postcards from Cuddles (Did you hear he was on vacation?) and postcards from the islands they have created for their landform projects. This work will be presented at our Artist in Residence celebration night, coming up in May.
Just a reminder that April vacation is around the corner, and our new school times begin May 1st. School will begin at 7:30, and end at 2:30 in order to make up time for the multiple snow days.
As well, you should have received an email sign up for parent teacher conferences. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this!
