Grade 1 & 2 News

For those of you that I have never met, I would like to introduce myself! My name is Janet Adelman and I am currently covering Stacey Romanchuk’s maternity leave. I am so excited to be working with this Grade 1/2 class for the rest of the 2014 school

Here are a few things we are currently working on at school. In Math, the Grade 1’s have started a new unit on measurement and they are comparing and ordering lengths and comparing area, capacities and masses. The Grade 2’s finished up their unit on Adding and Subtracting to 18 and are now working on geometry! We are
learning lots about all sorts of different shapes. In ELA, our class has been doing more work with centers and we have recently added a listening center. Soon we will be starting an author study on Robert Munsch with Ms. Burgess in the library. In Science we have been learning about different animals and which animal group they belong to (Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, Fish, Insects or other). Feel free to test your child at home to see what they have learned. Social has got our class learning about different kinds of maps and soon we will be learning about our community. In Art we have been experimenting with water colour paint and pastels and in Health we are learning about how to keep ourselves healthy!

We have been very busy in the two weeks back from the break but we have been having a lot of fun! I have thoroughly enjoyed the past two weeks with this class and I am looking forward to what the rest of this year has to bring! Always feel free to contact me any time about any questions, concerns or anything!
