It’s been a busy week here in Grade 2. This week we learned about writing a friendly letter. All of the students wrote a letter to a classmate who hurt her leg and I was very proud of the work they put into them. We had our first spelling test and participated in the Terry Fox Walk on Friday. We also had a couple birthdays this week!
In math, we continue to learn about ordinals, skip counting, and creating patterns. Students used pattern blocks to create their own 3-5 element pattern and we all played a game with Odd and Even Numbers.
In Literacy, we are reviewing reading strategies. This week we talked about the -ack family. Students also completed their Cause and Effect piece about Camilla Cream from ‘A Bad Case of Stripes’.
In Art, we read ‘The Crayon Box That Talked’ and we created our own beautiful crayon box. Students discussed the word ‘unique’ and worked hard to make their own crayon unique.
