Hello! The first couple of weeks back at school have been busy with the kids transitioning into grade two; they are starting to settle in with our classroom routines and are getting the swing of things. Miss Kolach, our new special education teacher, is helping us with math. Math is set up similar to last year, where the grade two’s are split into two groups and will rotate back and forth between Miss Kolach and myself. Our first unit is on patterning. In Language Arts, we are starting our reader’s workshop, focusing on how to read a book and choosing just right books. For writer’s workshop, we are going back to basics on how to make a great sentence. We are also currently working on a nursery rhyme unit. As we are still getting established in our language arts program, I’ve decided to start our spelling program in October as opposed to September. We are also learning about Growth and Changes in Animals for Science, as well as Our Local Community for Social Studies. Feel free to pop by to see what we are learning about or if you have any questions about your child’s progress in school.
