Here is a great video we watch in class to help us learn our Odd and Even numbers!
We are learning about verbs this month. Here is a fun activity we did this week with our favourite "Angry Bird" characters. We coloured our birds and then wrote sentences describing the action [verb] the bird demonstrated while angry.
Gracie's Mom served corn flakes and rice krispies yesterday. Yum! Thank you Melinda! It is great to have parents in to visit our classroom each week.
Every third Wednesday Grade Two has the opportunity to participate in an outdoor classroom. Our first adventure was a walk over the train bridge to the Longhouse. We learned all about how it was built, the significance of the sacred fire, and much more.
This week our Breakfast Program got underway! Once a week, each Grade is served breakfast by a parent volunteer. Grade Two would like to thank Heather Brooks for the delicious toast and apple juice today. What a great way to start our day!
We had a fun filled day at CHSMES. Check out our fantastic costumes!
We are learning how contractions are formed this month. Two words are combined to make one shorter word, and an apostrophe takes the place of one or two letters. Joseph displays "you'll" which is short for "you will."
Nursing students from UNB visited our classroom on Friday, Oct. 18th. They spoke about the importance of personal hygiene with a focus on handwashing. They had a great interactive demonstration using "glo germs' and a blacklight. We are practicing washing our hands properly before recess and lunch daily.
Sadie and Gracie demonstrate "Stretchy Snake." When faced with an unknown/difficult word students S T R E T C H the sounds of the word out while stretching an elastic band. Then they put the sounds together to make the word while the elastic shrinks to its original size. Try it out at home!
** You may notice that your child did not come home with homework reading books. If this is the case it is due to last week's unreturned books. Please check at home for any books borrowed from school. All homework materials have to be returned each Friday in order for your child to be a "Pickle!"
**Every student is required to have both an indoor and outdoor pair of shoes for school. Help keep the gym and hallway floors clean!
