Grade 2

We made it to the end of the school year! This school year was definitely different in so many ways compared to other years however, regardless here we are in the last month of the school year. Our Grade 2’s continued their on-line learning journeys until the first week of June. During the last few weeks of on-line learning, students were asked to explore a variety of different literacy formats including poetry. Students were invited to try to write a mixture of different poetry styles that included acrostic poems, limericks and sensory poems. In math, students were asked to complete two of the last curriculum outcomes at home which included measurement and data collection. During the measurement unit, students were asked to complete measurements at home using a variety of materials that may have included ordinary household items. Data collection followed the measurement unit, where students were challenged to collect data from their specific households and use that data to create and answer questions along with representing the data in a graph format.

The school year was filled with a lot of laughter, learning and fun. Things changed in March when we were forced to move to an at home learning system due to the pandemic however, students, families and teaches all did a great job adapting accordingly so, we could move forward. The end of the school year definitely looked different with on-line/at home learning but like I mentioned above we’ve made it to the end regardless. I hope everyone has a great summer and I look forward to seeing everyone again once we are allowed back into the classrooms!

Due to the challenging times schools have had to evolve and adapt to provide students with the education they deserve. This evolution has displaced in class learning with at home learning which has resulted in students and teachers prioritizing online learning. The province has recommended that elementary teachers provide students with 30 minutes of math and literacy a day.

For literacy the grade 2 students have focused on crucial components of literacy that include reading, word work and writing. Students were asked to explore a variety of texts that will help them build on information they’ve already learned in class. Epic and Raz-kids are a couple of online resources that were provided to students to help them maintain and practice their reading abilities. Focus was also put on writing as students were asked to complete writing/journal entries that included their daily activities or themes like Earth Day. Students were also asked to work on words such as nouns and verbs to reinforce their knowledge of context within a sentence. Literacy is an essential part of an education, which is why we’ve prioritized it during these challenging times.

Math has also been made a priority. The grade 2 students focused on measurement during the month of April. Students were asked to measure things around the house as well as things outside the house. To complete these measurements, students were asked to use non-standard units such as, pens, spoons, popsicle sticks or blocks. Students used these non-standard units to measure length, width and height. Once a measurement was completed students were to order their measurements from smallest to bigger to biggest and vice versa. Hopefully these activities helped grade 2 students become familiar with some of the vocabulary and functions that are related to measurement. These are no doubt challenging times but with the focus that has been placed on literacy and mathematics our students should have no problem hitting the ground running when schools return to normality.
