March was a fun filled month that was full of learning experiences that were engaging and enjoyable. Covid-19 has forced us to change the way we do a lot of things however, LSK was still able to create a winter carnival for the students to enjoy. Again, it was different from the winter carnivals we’ve had in the past but students were still able to be entertained with arts and crafts, a movie day, a game day and outdoor activities. Having the walking trails so close to the school is amazing and I can’t wait to explore them with the students more as the weather starts to warm up. In ELA, students continued their exploration of non-fictional texts. Students used their experiences with non-fiction to improve their reading and writing skills. In math, students expanded their knowledge of 3-D shapes as we classified them and compared them to 2-D shapes. Students also created 3-D shapes using toothpicks and play-doh. Students were also introduced to double digit addition this month. In science, students investigated the three states of matter where they completed a science experiment in which they had to test a variety of different solids to see if they would dissolve in water. March was a great month, full exploration and excitement.
As we move into April, students will continue to studying non-fictional texts. Students will also be introduced to double digit subtraction. During our exploration unit, students will be introduced to what a consumer is and how consumers decisions are influenced. Easter, falls in the month of April so we’ll use the theme as inspiration for an art - based activity. March was a great month here in grade 2 and I know that April will be just as great.
