Buddies, Art and Math

We finished up our Magnet invention/game/toy. Today we shared them with our buddies. Ask me about this! What worked well on my game, What would I change for next time?

We started fall art inspired by Vincent Van Gough. Ask me what kind of artist he was, and what the piece of art we got our inspiration from. (Avenue of Poplars in Autumn).


In math we have been working on shapes, and patterns. Ask me to create a ABBCD pattern at home using objects around the house. Ask me to create a growing pattern. How many does the pattern grow by?

Ask me about my Writers Brain Pocket. What memories (people, places, objects, events), facts or imagination ideas do I have in each pocket? We are trying to discover different ways to write. 




Magnet Toy/Game

Today we started creating our magnet toy/game. We will be sharing these with our Kindergarten buddies next week. Ask me how the game work and where I used the magnet? See some of our designs below. We aren't finished just yet...

Picture day Thursday Oct. 10th.

Library Day every Tuesday

Magnet Invention/Game and Math

We have been working on designing a magnet invention or game. The invention had to have a purpose. What is my invention or toys purpose? How does it work? What materials do I need? Please collect recycled materials at home and bring them in tomorrow. We will start building our inventions soon!

How many triangles do you see? Ask me what my strategy was!

Home reading: Students should be exchanging their home reading book each morning. Please ensure you try for 10-15 minutes of reading each night. You can have them read to you while cooking dinner, snuggled on a couch or right before bed! 

2D Shapes & Literacy Centers

Today we practiced some literacy centers. We are trying to get independent with them because when a group is reading with the teacher, we don't want to interrupt. Ask me what buddy reading, word search and making word centers are. What is my job during that time? 


Ask me the names of 2D shapes. Where do I see them in the world? 


Orange Shirt Day Monday/Reminders

“Healthy Hunger is happening again this year. Sign up to order lunches for your child(ren) on the selected days. Orders can be done for the year, or month to month. Healthy Hunger is also where you will register for some school events like Movie Night (first one is Toy Story 4 on Oct 10!)

Make 20 Math Game and Magnets

Today we learned a new math game called make 20. You get to take 5 dice and roll up to 3 times. You are trying to get as close to 20 as possible. If you go over you don't get points, but you can stop if you are very close to 20. Ask me how my partner and I played. You could play this game at home to build mental math and addition.


We have been learning about magnet poles. Ask me about what happens when you put south and south poles together or north and south. Why does this happen? How does a compass work?

Updates As of Sept. 23rd.

Terry Fox Run rescheduled for this Wednesday afternoon due to the expected weather on Thursday. Our class has raised $32. Our goal is $50. We are continuing to collect toonies ($2) for Terry Fox.  Our school is trying to raise $1000.

Welcome to Grade 2!

Thank you for your patience...our blog just got updated, and I will be posting with information, updates, and what we've been up to in room 74.

So far in Grade 2 we have been getting to know each other and learning the routines of the classroom. Ask me what our class expectations are? Did I make a new friend? What makes a good friend?

We are starting to learn about the brain and how we can stretch and flex it. Ask me the parts of the brain!

Each month we will be illustrating a chicken soup poem. Ask me what I drew? What was in my pattern border.

Ask me to tell you about the 4 different "Zones of Regulation" What are the colors and what feelings do I have in that zone? What are some tools that will help me be green.
