We had a smiling birthday boy in Grade Two today!
Every Tuesday at lunch interested K-2 students enjoy an "Under the Sea" extra curricular club with myself and Ms. Stephanie. We watch highly entertaining and educational videos of scuba divers as they discover the wonders of the ocean floor. We learn interesting facts about sea creatures and make related crafts. We had a blast on our first day!
Each Friday, students who hand in completed homework and home books get to be a "PICKLE!" Pickles are rewarded for their hard work by choosing a fun activity while "Ketchups" have the opportunity to get caught up on homework. For our first "Pickle" time we had a blast making SLIME!
Every Thursday Grade Two has "Reading buddies" with Grade Five. Students from both grades benefit from practicing reading fluency and strategies together. We enjoyed our first meeting today!
Pancake Breakfast was the perfect way to end a wonderful first week in Grade Two!
Twas the Night Before School
Twas the night before school started,
When all through the town
The parents were cheering
It was a riotous sound
By eight kids were washed
And tucked into bed
When memories of homework
Filled them with dread
New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too!
New teachers, new friends…
Their anxiety grew
The parents just giggled when
They learned of this fright
And shouted – “Upstairs! –
go to bed! It’s a school night!”
Nevaeh shares her writing from today describing the state our classroom was in this St. Patrick's Day morning. Excellent job!
Grade Two had a special homework project this week. Our task was to build leprechaun traps from materials found around our homes, and complete a procedural writing piece to explain how to make them. This morning we presented our traps to the class and set them around the classroom in preparation for St. Patrick's Day. We are excited to see what Monday morning will bring! Stay tuned....
