Grade 1 & 2 News

Wow! Our time in the Grade 1/2 class just keeps flying by!
Here are some of the highlights from the month!
Our Reader’s Workshop has us looking deeper into our reading stamina and we have started setting personal goals about how long we want to be able to read without stopping. We have also just started talking about activating our schema as we read (ask your child about it!). In Math, the Grade 2’s have started a measurement unit and are practicing measuring items using different units of measurement (paper clips, snap cubes, straws, etc.). In Science, we have started a new unit on liquids and solids and have been doing all sorts of cool experiments with liquids! We are having lots of fun in Science! Everyone is working hard and enjoying their time at school.

We have a very busy next couple of weeks coming up and here are a few items to take note of:

  • Grade 1/2 Field Trip to Wet Paint and Eastview Bowl in Saskatoon – Wednesday, May 28
  • Swimming Lessons for Try-All-A-Thon – May 29 and June 11
  • Farm Safety – June 9
  • Tri-Clinic – June 18

Please return signed Try-All-A-Thon permission forms to the school ASAP!
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns or just for an update

I hope you all enjoyed a great May long weekend!
