Today we finished our art project! While students are studying Canada they have been learning about important animals. One of them is the moose! Moose are indigenous to Canada, and are found in many places from coast to coast. Today students used a variety of media to finish their paintings (including cardboard, pencils and their own fingers), adding details to their trees and backgrounds, painting a moose and adding antlers. Check them out outside the classroom!

Continuing with our East Coast and Canada theme, we also read a new poem. 

The Lighthouse - By John Foster

The lighthouse guards the mouth of the bay,

To warn other ships to keep away,

To steer clear of the rocky shore,

Where many a ship has been wrecked before.


Through gales and storms,

Through day and night,

The lighthouse flashes its yellow light.

Warning sailors to keep away.

From the jagged rocks beneath the bay.

We talked about how poems create an emotion in the reader. Ask your student what emotion they felt when reading the poem. Which words created that feeling?

During our literacy time, students are given a specific list of words related to their level. This ranges from focusing on words with ch, th and sh to words that change when adding ing. Each week they are assessed on their words and receive a new set. Ask your child which patterns they are working on this week.

In science, students are applying their knowledge about magnets to design and create a magnet game. We are still in the designing process, but their ideas are very creative! Next week we will be creating them and testing out our games to see if they fulfill their purpose.

Welcome back! It was wonderful to see everyone looking rested, relaxed and READY for learning! This morning students started with math message and a new number activity. Students were given a number and had to represent it using tally marks and numbers, and decide where it would be placed on a number line. Students then shifted their focus to shape, and collaborated to decide on criteria for a triangle. We decided that triangles had to have three lines, three angles, and the lines had to connect to a point. Ask your student to show you one example of a triangle and one non-example! 

This afternoon in music students learned about our Winter Concert in December! We are starting to learn songs and movements this week, and will be rehearsing during some music classes for the next few months. Today's song was called "Cold Snap!" - ask your student what that means!

Everyone came to school today with their best smiles and looking sharp! This morning we introduced a new literacy station - listening to reading. Students used iPads and logged into EPIC books. Ask them which books they read and what they liked the most.

In the afternoon we traveled to New Brunswick. We learned about the Bay of Fundy and the fascinating high and low tides. We also learned about the Magnetic Hill. Is it truly magnetic or just an optical illusion? We didn't get too far as there were so many fascinating things to see!

Students have become very observant and notice patterns and connections to what they are learning in the classroom in all sorts of places in the school! For the last week number talks in math have focused on the strategy of making 10 (looking for numbers to combine to make 10's, for example, 6+4). Today in gym students had to make 10's while playing card shark! In music, students were using non-pitched instruments to find the beat in the song "Pass the Pumpkin". When students were invited to choose an instrument they found a growing pattern (ask your student what the pattern rule was!). Students have now started exploring shapes in our math time, and are beginning to use new language (such as prism) to describe the 2D shapes and 3D objects they see. Ask your student what would we call a 5-sided shape? 6-sided? 10-sided?

After traveling to the eastern province of Newfoundland and Labrador, we ventured to our next province, Nova Scotia. We learned that they are very similar to that of the previous province, but that music seemed to be a lot more prevalent. Students always marvel at how long it takes to travel to a province by walking, driving and flying. "I didn't know Canada was so big!" A lot of them mentioned today.

In literacy we have found our groove in our various literacy stations, we will be introducing another later one later on the week to build comprehension and fluency.

We had a backwards day and did the next step of our art project before math! Students used steel wool to re-create the patterns on aspen trees using white paper and black paint. We then cut them out and added them to the backgrounds from last week. Next up is the moose! We also read a book today about moose - ask your student where in Canada they can be found, and what they like to eat!

Students tried their first counting circle in math, counting using 2's and 10's. We will continue using counting circles in different ways through the year. Students were also given a pattern challenge - "On Monday 5 yellow leaves fell. On Tuesday 10 red leaves fell. On Wednesday 15 yellow leaves fell. How many fell and what colour were they for the rest of the week?" Students quickly noticed that there were two patterns! One growing and one repeating. Try this problem at home, and for an extra challenge how many leaves fell altogether?

Welcome to October! This is a very exciting month with lots of events happening, including TWO Fun Lunches, swimming and the Halloween Howl! If you would like to order fun lunch please click the link above!

In our number talk today students combined two addition strategies that we have been talking about, doubles and making tens. Ask your students how they would solve 5+5, 5+7+5 and 5+2+5! Students then played Zero the Hero and talked about how words can give clues to show if we use addition or subtraction - what would a word like increase mean? Decrease? Our math challenge today was about repeating patterns - if a student collected some green leaves, some orange leaves, some yellow leaves and some red leaves outside, what kind of patterns could they make? How many DIFFERENT patterns can you find? For an extra challenge students had to find and circle the CORE of the pattern (the part that repeats). Can you find it in your pattern?

Quick Reminders!

  • We will be going swimming the week of October 28 - 31 from 10 - 11:30. We are looking for volunteers. If you are able to join us please email Mrs. Hordyk or Ms Bell.

What a busy day! Today we learned a new math game, Save 20! Students rolled 5 dice and decided which ones to keep and which ones to re-roll. In three turns how close can you get to 20? The challenge was not going over! If you went over then you were BUST and got NO points! Adding up the points from turn to turn, how close can you get to 100? Students then tried a new increasing pattern - 


What is the pattern? How many squares would you use for JUST step 12? How many squares would you use for ALL the steps one to ten?

After math students began a new art project! Since the class is looking at Canada, students are going to be doing a multi-media picture of a moose in the wild. Today we started the background, using paint to make a graduated wash from darker to lighter as they reach the ground. We also looked at how we could add clouds! Next week we will continue by adding aspen trees and the moose!

During our Literacy time today, students were introduced to Word Work. We will be using Words Their Way. It is a program focusing on various letter blends and combinations to assist students in building their understanding of words. The words are based upon where they are and will continue to change. Keep a look out for a list of words that will be coming home this week.

This afternoon, students watched a video showcasing various images found around Canada. Many thought they were in different parts of the world and needed reminders they were all from Canada. Here is one of the videos they had a chance to watch. When you think of Canada, what comes to mind?


Have you checked the weather lately? Our Terry Fox Run has been rescheduled to Wednesday, September 25 in the afternoon.

Thankfully the weather held together and we had a wonderful time at SOGO at Fish Creek Park. Students participated in learning various symbols and concluded by running a outlined path using the symbols.  The path consisted of a 1.5 km loop. The students were FAST; some running it in 10 minutes! They had the opportunity to try beating their previous score and building their endurance. 

In the afternoon we learned more about Terry Fox and the legacy he has left behind. Some students wondered how old he was and whether or not his parents were still around. We learned that he would have been 59 years old! 
We also continued our exploration of magnets. Students were given the question, what can a magnet work through? Using a magnet wand and paper clip, students walked around testing various objects. They discovered there are in fact a lot of things and that it also depends on the strength of the magnet.

Hope you are able to stop by and chat with us during our open house tonight 6:00 - 7:30pm. There is no school tomorrow!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Students had their second day of SOGO this morning! Ask your student what stations they participated in today, and why it is important to work hard at SOGO. What muscle are they exercising the most? Just like SOGO prepares our bodies for the Terry Fox Run next week, in music class we began preparing to sing "O Canada". Students learned that this is our national anthem, and has words in two languages. We also talked about what the story is with "O Canada" and its significance - for example, where else we hear "O Canada" and why we sing it. 

In math students learned a greater and less than card game using A-10 cards. Ask your student how to play!

Quick Reminders!

  • We have our final day of SOGO Running on Thursday, September 19. We will be walking to Fish Creek Park in the morning and coming back before lunch. Please make sure you check the weather forecast and send your student with appropriate clothing!

If you're wondering why your child is coming home extra tired, it's because they had their first day of SOGO. SOGO is adventure running for students. Today they participated in 2 stations that worked their endurance in the morning. One required them to follow a marked path and collect cards. Ask your child what the other station was.

To prepare to interview Mr. Wilcox students realized that they needed to create questions to ask! During writing, students evaluated questions they had created for Mr. Wilcox and sorted them into two categories: ones that would either give them a little or lots of information. Students worked in partners to create questions that required Mr. Wilcox to give lots of information.  Here are some examples they have come up with:

Quick Reminders!

  • Me in a Bag went home! Students are to find 3-5 items that tell who they are and why they are amazing! We will being doing a show and tell and some writing around this exercise. If they are stuck on what to include, they could include something green to show that their favourite colour is green. This activity revolves around our Grade 2 theme of "What's your story?". They are due back on Monday, September 16th

What a wonderful week! We had a busy day today talking about our brains! We read the poem "The Power of YET!" and discussed things that were hard the first time they tried and how they got easier over time. For example, playing soccer and reading. We also continued talking about growth mindset and brain by building brain hats and reviewing the different parts of the brain and their jobs. Mrs. Roworth joined us for our math time today as we asked the question: using a snail, an octopus, a ladybug, a moose and an ostrich, how many ways are there to make 12 feet? Try this at home!

Next week in gym we are going to be outside three days participating in the SOGO Adventure Running residency (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday). Please make sure that you are checking the weather and sending your student with appropriate outdoor clothing!

This morning students attended an assembly focusing on the importance of Dare to Care. Students learned that it is important to stand tall and treat others with respect. Growing our brains has been a continuous focus in our classroom. 

Students have learned that:

  • the brain is a muscle
  • making mistakes are a good thing.
  • We need to challenge ourselves in order to learn
  • the power of yet is an important way of thinking.

We also looked at a map of Canada and generated a list of various facts we know about Canada. We know that we live in a country that is safe and beautiful. We then labeled all the provinces and territories. We will be looking deeply into various communities around Canada throughout the year.

Today students continued their study of patterns by talking about about attributes. What is an attribute? An attribute is something that can change in a repeating pattern (for example, size, shape and colour). Ask your student what kind of patterns they created that had changing attributes. This afternoon students had their first music class of the year and learned a name game called Up the Ladder. Can you sing the song at home with the actions? Students then continued their art projects by creating sentences about what they like to do and what they will grow at doing this year. We can't wait to show you the art next week!

Today students began discussing patterns! We decided that a pattern is something that repeats. Patterns can be made of sound, shapes, colours, pictures, letters, words and NUMBERS! Students then created their own patterns out of unifix cubes and linking cubes, and then described them using letters. Ask your student to make a pattern at home! This afternoon students started a new art project. We watched a video on growth mindset and talked about how our brains are stretchy and can grow and learn! Our neurons keep forming new pathways when we try new activities! Students then used tempera paint and crayon to create the backgrounds for their art piece about growth mindset.

Wow! What a wonderful (and quick!) week of learning! This week students learned about different parts of the brain, and how each part of the brain has a specific job. We will continue to learn about the brain stem, hippocampus, amygdala and more in the next few weeks! Today the class read a poem about back to school, and reviewed rhyming words with highlighters. How do you know what is a rhyming word? We decided that rhyming words have the same endings. Ask your student what rhyming words we found!

One of our class expectations is to BE KIND. Today we focused on kindness. Students were shown a bowl of water.  This represented the class. The pepper represented the class. We used sugar and soap to represents different actions. Ask your child what happened. It's AMAZING!


In the afternoon we had gym and recapped all the expectations around gym. We concluded finishing our Biogylphs. They will be on display just outside our classroom.


Just a reminder that tomorrow students will be dismissed at 11:50.

Today we finished our art project! While students are studying Canada they have been learning about important animals. One of them is the moose! Moose are indigenous to Canada, and are found in many places from coast to coast. Today students used a variety of media to finish their paintings (including cardboard, pencils and their own fingers), adding details to their trees and backgrounds, painting a moose and adding antlers. Check them out outside the classroom!

Continuing with our East Coast and Canada theme, we also read a new poem. 

The Lighthouse - By John Foster

The lighthouse guards the mouth of the bay,

To warn other ships to keep away,

To steer clear of the rocky shore,

Where many a ship has been wrecked before.


Through gales and storms,

Through day and night,

The lighthouse flashes its yellow light.

Warning sailors to keep away.

From the jagged rocks beneath the bay.

We talked about how poems create an emotion in the reader. Ask your student what emotion they felt when reading the poem. Which words created that feeling?

During our literacy time, students are given a specific list of words related to their level. This ranges from focusing on words with ch, th and sh to words that change when adding ing. Each week they are assessed on their words and receive a new set. Ask your child which patterns they are working on this week.

In science, students are applying their knowledge about magnets to design and create a magnet game. We are still in the designing process, but their ideas are very creative! Next week we will be creating them and testing out our games to see if they fulfill their purpose.

Welcome back! It was wonderful to see everyone looking rested, relaxed and READY for learning! This morning students started with math message and a new number activity. Students were given a number and had to represent it using tally marks and numbers, and decide where it would be placed on a number line. Students then shifted their focus to shape, and collaborated to decide on criteria for a triangle. We decided that triangles had to have three lines, three angles, and the lines had to connect to a point. Ask your student to show you one example of a triangle and one non-example! 

This afternoon in music students learned about our Winter Concert in December! We are starting to learn songs and movements this week, and will be rehearsing during some music classes for the next few months. Today's song was called "Cold Snap!" - ask your student what that means!

Everyone came to school today with their best smiles and looking sharp! This morning we introduced a new literacy station - listening to reading. Students used iPads and logged into EPIC books. Ask them which books they read and what they liked the most.

In the afternoon we traveled to New Brunswick. We learned about the Bay of Fundy and the fascinating high and low tides. We also learned about the Magnetic Hill. Is it truly magnetic or just an optical illusion? We didn't get too far as there were so many fascinating things to see!

Students have become very observant and notice patterns and connections to what they are learning in the classroom in all sorts of places in the school! For the last week number talks in math have focused on the strategy of making 10 (looking for numbers to combine to make 10's, for example, 6+4). Today in gym students had to make 10's while playing card shark! In music, students were using non-pitched instruments to find the beat in the song "Pass the Pumpkin". When students were invited to choose an instrument they found a growing pattern (ask your student what the pattern rule was!). Students have now started exploring shapes in our math time, and are beginning to use new language (such as prism) to describe the 2D shapes and 3D objects they see. Ask your student what would we call a 5-sided shape? 6-sided? 10-sided?

After traveling to the eastern province of Newfoundland and Labrador, we ventured to our next province, Nova Scotia. We learned that they are very similar to that of the previous province, but that music seemed to be a lot more prevalent. Students always marvel at how long it takes to travel to a province by walking, driving and flying. "I didn't know Canada was so big!" A lot of them mentioned today.

In literacy we have found our groove in our various literacy stations, we will be introducing another later one later on the week to build comprehension and fluency.

We had a backwards day and did the next step of our art project before math! Students used steel wool to re-create the patterns on aspen trees using white paper and black paint. We then cut them out and added them to the backgrounds from last week. Next up is the moose! We also read a book today about moose - ask your student where in Canada they can be found, and what they like to eat!

Students tried their first counting circle in math, counting using 2's and 10's. We will continue using counting circles in different ways through the year. Students were also given a pattern challenge - "On Monday 5 yellow leaves fell. On Tuesday 10 red leaves fell. On Wednesday 15 yellow leaves fell. How many fell and what colour were they for the rest of the week?" Students quickly noticed that there were two patterns! One growing and one repeating. Try this problem at home, and for an extra challenge how many leaves fell altogether?

Welcome to October! This is a very exciting month with lots of events happening, including TWO Fun Lunches, swimming and the Halloween Howl! If you would like to order fun lunch please click the link above!

In our number talk today students combined two addition strategies that we have been talking about, doubles and making tens. Ask your students how they would solve 5+5, 5+7+5 and 5+2+5! Students then played Zero the Hero and talked about how words can give clues to show if we use addition or subtraction - what would a word like increase mean? Decrease? Our math challenge today was about repeating patterns - if a student collected some green leaves, some orange leaves, some yellow leaves and some red leaves outside, what kind of patterns could they make? How many DIFFERENT patterns can you find? For an extra challenge students had to find and circle the CORE of the pattern (the part that repeats). Can you find it in your pattern?

What a busy day! Today we learned a new math game, Save 20! Students rolled 5 dice and decided which ones to keep and which ones to re-roll. In three turns how close can you get to 20? The challenge was not going over! If you went over then you were BUST and got NO points! Adding up the points from turn to turn, how close can you get to 100? Students then tried a new increasing pattern - 


What is the pattern? How many squares would you use for JUST step 12? How many squares would you use for ALL the steps one to ten?

After math students began a new art project! Since the class is looking at Canada, students are going to be doing a multi-media picture of a moose in the wild. Today we started the background, using paint to make a graduated wash from darker to lighter as they reach the ground. We also looked at how we could add clouds! Next week we will continue by adding aspen trees and the moose!

During our Literacy time today, students were introduced to Word Work. We will be using Words Their Way. It is a program focusing on various letter blends and combinations to assist students in building their understanding of words. The words are based upon where they are and will continue to change. Keep a look out for a list of words that will be coming home this week.

This afternoon, students watched a video showcasing various images found around Canada. Many thought they were in different parts of the world and needed reminders they were all from Canada. Here is one of the videos they had a chance to watch. When you think of Canada, what comes to mind?


Have you checked the weather lately? Our Terry Fox Run has been rescheduled to Wednesday, September 25 in the afternoon.

Thankfully the weather held together and we had a wonderful time at SOGO at Fish Creek Park. Students participated in learning various symbols and concluded by running a outlined path using the symbols.  The path consisted of a 1.5 km loop. The students were FAST; some running it in 10 minutes! They had the opportunity to try beating their previous score and building their endurance. 

In the afternoon we learned more about Terry Fox and the legacy he has left behind. Some students wondered how old he was and whether or not his parents were still around. We learned that he would have been 59 years old! 
We also continued our exploration of magnets. Students were given the question, what can a magnet work through? Using a magnet wand and paper clip, students walked around testing various objects. They discovered there are in fact a lot of things and that it also depends on the strength of the magnet.

Hope you are able to stop by and chat with us during our open house tonight 6:00 - 7:30pm. There is no school tomorrow!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Students had their second day of SOGO this morning! Ask your student what stations they participated in today, and why it is important to work hard at SOGO. What muscle are they exercising the most? Just like SOGO prepares our bodies for the Terry Fox Run next week, in music class we began preparing to sing "O Canada". Students learned that this is our national anthem, and has words in two languages. We also talked about what the story is with "O Canada" and its significance - for example, where else we hear "O Canada" and why we sing it. 

In math students learned a greater and less than card game using A-10 cards. Ask your student how to play!

Quick Reminders!

  • We have our final day of SOGO Running on Thursday, September 19. We will be walking to Fish Creek Park in the morning and coming back before lunch. Please make sure you check the weather forecast and send your student with appropriate clothing!

If you're wondering why your child is coming home extra tired, it's because they had their first day of SOGO. SOGO is adventure running for students. Today they participated in 2 stations that worked their endurance in the morning. One required them to follow a marked path and collect cards. Ask your child what the other station was.

To prepare to interview Mr. Wilcox students realized that they needed to create questions to ask! During writing, students evaluated questions they had created for Mr. Wilcox and sorted them into two categories: ones that would either give them a little or lots of information. Students worked in partners to create questions that required Mr. Wilcox to give lots of information.  Here are some examples they have come up with:

Quick Reminders!

  • Me in a Bag went home! Students are to find 3-5 items that tell who they are and why they are amazing! We will being doing a show and tell and some writing around this exercise. If they are stuck on what to include, they could include something green to show that their favourite colour is green. This activity revolves around our Grade 2 theme of "What's your story?". They are due back on Monday, September 16th

What a wonderful week! We had a busy day today talking about our brains! We read the poem "The Power of YET!" and discussed things that were hard the first time they tried and how they got easier over time. For example, playing soccer and reading. We also continued talking about growth mindset and brain by building brain hats and reviewing the different parts of the brain and their jobs. Mrs. Roworth joined us for our math time today as we asked the question: using a snail, an octopus, a ladybug, a moose and an ostrich, how many ways are there to make 12 feet? Try this at home!

Next week in gym we are going to be outside three days participating in the SOGO Adventure Running residency (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday). Please make sure that you are checking the weather and sending your student with appropriate outdoor clothing!

This morning students attended an assembly focusing on the importance of Dare to Care. Students learned that it is important to stand tall and treat others with respect. Growing our brains has been a continuous focus in our classroom. 

Students have learned that:

  • the brain is a muscle
  • making mistakes are a good thing.
  • We need to challenge ourselves in order to learn
  • the power of yet is an important way of thinking.

We also looked at a map of Canada and generated a list of various facts we know about Canada. We know that we live in a country that is safe and beautiful. We then labeled all the provinces and territories. We will be looking deeply into various communities around Canada throughout the year.

Today students continued their study of patterns by talking about about attributes. What is an attribute? An attribute is something that can change in a repeating pattern (for example, size, shape and colour). Ask your student what kind of patterns they created that had changing attributes. This afternoon students had their first music class of the year and learned a name game called Up the Ladder. Can you sing the song at home with the actions? Students then continued their art projects by creating sentences about what they like to do and what they will grow at doing this year. We can't wait to show you the art next week!

Today students began discussing patterns! We decided that a pattern is something that repeats. Patterns can be made of sound, shapes, colours, pictures, letters, words and NUMBERS! Students then created their own patterns out of unifix cubes and linking cubes, and then described them using letters. Ask your student to make a pattern at home! This afternoon students started a new art project. We watched a video on growth mindset and talked about how our brains are stretchy and can grow and learn! Our neurons keep forming new pathways when we try new activities! Students then used tempera paint and crayon to create the backgrounds for their art piece about growth mindset.

Wow! What a wonderful (and quick!) week of learning! This week students learned about different parts of the brain, and how each part of the brain has a specific job. We will continue to learn about the brain stem, hippocampus, amygdala and more in the next few weeks! Today the class read a poem about back to school, and reviewed rhyming words with highlighters. How do you know what is a rhyming word? We decided that rhyming words have the same endings. Ask your student what rhyming words we found!

One of our class expectations is to BE KIND. Today we focused on kindness. Students were shown a bowl of water.  This represented the class. The pepper represented the class. We used sugar and soap to represents different actions. Ask your child what happened. It's AMAZING!


In the afternoon we had gym and recapped all the expectations around gym. We concluded finishing our Biogylphs. They will be on display just outside our classroom.


Just a reminder that tomorrow students will be dismissed at 11:50.


Have a wonderful evening!
