Bonjour grade 2F parents, I hope everyone had a wonderful week.

 

This week the students worked on:

French: Dictée (corrections from last week as well as the new dictée) et Pré-dictée le son u. I also read to them a story, we then went over who, what, where, when and how. Then I asked the students to write about the story we just read by referring to my notes on the board as well as the word wall. This was a brief evaluation to see how much detail the students could incorporate in their writing. We also worked specifically on les noms propres in their grammar books.

Science: We continued talking about Liquids and solids and gas. I reviewed the last bit of gases with them and asked them to write about 1 thing that stood out to them the most about gasses. We also did a review in class in order for me to see how much the students understood and on, they will have their official evaluation.

Social Studies: We talked about communities, rural, suburban and urban. I then had the students draw details of each community on a piece of paper having them describe what they looked like and what the importance of each community was.

Religion: We continued reading chapter 3 and talked about important and memorable stories we share at home with the family and what is one of the most important ones that they remember either growing up hearing about or that they had with their family.

Math: Counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We did different activities within the classroom to ensure the students knew how to count by each of them followed by activity sheets for practice.

 

Reminder:

Homework: We have had much practice within the classroom in science and we also completed a practice test at school today and on Tuesday, they will have their evaluation on this unit.

Dictée correction if there are any.

Please continue having your kids read books in order to practice their French language.

 

Merci et bonne fin de semaine!

We have library every Thursday if you could please make sure your child has their book as well as their bag to put the book in because it is generally raining out now and we want to make sure the books aren’t getting wet.

I also sent a High tech High touch form a new days ago if you could please sign it and have your child bring it back if they have not yet that would be wonderful.

If they have not brought back their Walkathon sheets, please have them bring everything to me by Monday if possible.
