We have had a solid week in Grade 2. And it is hard to believe that we have just two more weeks until Spring Break, although we are starting to feel ready for it. This week we spent much of our math classes working on a mystery puzzle. Students had to solve different clues, figuring out which suspect was guilty. They loved working on this, and did so well completing each clue with their partner. We have also started a Social Studies unit about Canada. We will be ‘reading across the country’ learning facts and interesting stories/history of each province and territory. And finally, we had an assembly this week on Safe and Unsafe Substances. It is important to review this, and students accurately recalled much of what they have learned in the past.
I’m sure most of you heard that on Thursday i had no voice, which led to me being away on Friday. On Thursday, when I had no voice the students were all so sweet, and they were very good listeners and adapted to switching things up a little. Although, they did think I was trying to play a joke on them at the beginning of the day. I’m sure they are enjoying their day with Mrs. Milec.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
