This past week we welcomed a new student into our grade two class. Welcome to grade two Karlea!! It is great to have you in class. We are looking forward to getting to know you more this year.
This week Grade one starts their spelling lists. Spelling lists will be sent home each week in their yellow homework folders (grade two folders are grey). Words will be introduced in class on Monday and spelling exercises will be given in class to help them understand the words. For homework students have a tic-tac-toe sheet with a variety of ways to help them study their words. Students will choose at least 3 activities to complete before Friday. Once your child has completed an activity please make sure you sign their sheet and have them staple any extra sheets they have used to the back of their homework sheet. On Friday students will write a test with the words from their list.
Grade two homework has the same format. This week grade two is working on their third spelling list.
We will have show and tell this week. This week’s theme will be “I am thankful for…” Students may bring in a item, a picture or anything they are thankful for. Grade one show and tell will be on Friday afternoon. Grade two will be split into two groups. The first group (Kyler, Josh and Clara) will be asked to bring their show and tell on Wednesday. The second group ( Karlea, Ceciley and Owen) will bring their show and tell on Thursday. Show and tell is a great way for students to gain confidence in speaking in front of people. This week we will be focusing on speaking clearly and loud enough so everyone in the room can hear. It is helpful for student to practice what they want to say before they present it to the class. Please help your child prepare what they would like to share. Each student will have 2 – 3 minutes to share.
