What’s Happening in Gr. 2 for April, 2018

     March has been a fun and busy month with our Spring Program practices, reading assessments and senior visit preparation.  This month we are looking forward to beginning our participation in the running club and our Compassion Canada fundraiser to purchase water filtration systems for families in developing countries, supporting “Trenton’s Wish Legacy”.  If you are willing to support us in this fundraiser by baking cookies for our sale day to ICES on Thurs., April 26, we would sure appreciate it!  Mr. Voort from Compassion Canada International plans to come to this Friday’s chapel to explain the details.   This fundraiser project is an extension of our next unit on liquids in Science, studying God’s gift of water and how He provides the water cycle as part of His plan for His creation.  Hopefully your family can help your child to fill out the water use survey, as a discussion point in our classrooms, which will lead to a more conscious effort on everyone’s part about trying to conserve water.  We plan to conclude our study of water with our buoyancy unit in May where students will enjoy learning about how and why things float and building their own floating contraptions.

      In Social Studies we enjoyed combining our study of the Inuit culture with a special wool felting art project presented by local artist and author, Tracy Kuffner.  All students very much enjoyed this unique experience!  We are preparing to use our imaginations to write our own Arctic legends soon.

     Please continue encouraging your child to earn rewards in his HSR log sheet (rewards for 50 and 100 books recorded and read) as well as RAZ kids if your child is logged into this program.  Only three more months of school before they enter grade three

      In Math, we are continuing our study of double digits addition and subtraction problems and working our way through word problems. We are discovering patterns in increasing and decreasing number patterns.  Please work with your child on these concepts, as well as basic math facts, so that figuring out story problems can come even easier to your child. There are some really fun free math games on the internet that will help your child add and subtract better. Here’s one site that may help get you started. http://www.fun4thebrain.com/addition.html

   Please return your child’s water survey and cookie baking slip by  Monday, April 23rd . Thank you!  If you are willing to donate clear plastic egg cartons we would appreciate them for our math cube trays.

Sincerely,

 Mrs. Skidmore & Mrs. V.H.

 

 

Communication:   Feel free to communicate with us regarding any questions or concerns you may have.  You can leave messages through the school office, e-mail us or call (before 9 pm). We all prefer to communicate through text messages, as we are more apt to check our phones before class begins and have our phones with us on field trips.  However, that doesn’t mean we will be checking our phones during our busy teaching day!  Please include your name if you text us!
