Grade 1 & 2 News

Hello Parents!

It always seems to sur- prise me how fast time flies. Hard to believe November has come and almost gone!

Here is what the Grade 1/2 class has been up to for the last little while! We continue to explore reading strategies during our Reader’s Workshop time. The grade 1s are really starting to develop some great strategies for independent reading. As well, our reading stamina is growing! In Math, the grade 1s are continuing their work with numbers to 20. They are also getting time to work on IXL computer math, as well as with Mrs. Martineau playing a variety of math games. The grade 2s continue their work with numbers to 100. In Science the grade 1s have been exploring the five senses with Mrs. Martineau, while the grade 2s and I continue experimenting with the motion of objects. Social Studies has found us exploring families and traditions and in Health we are exploring healthy relationships. Always lots going on in the Grade 1/2 class!

I would like to remind everyone that the cold weather has shown up and it appears to be sticking around! Please remember to send your child with proper outside attire, as we will not have indoor recesses unless the weather gets to be – 25 degrees with the wind chill. As always, feel free to contact me anytime about any questions or concerns you have by phone or email!

Stay warm!
Janet Adelman
