Hello Grade 2 families, 

Yesterday a system-wide email was sent to you by SchoolMessenger that provided families with interim K-9 resources and activities to engage in for the time prior to the scheduled spring break. You can access the resources below. 

Resources for home CBE

On this webpage, CBE has collected ideas and activities to support active learning across the disciplines. These activities are easy to do at home using common materials and are engaging for students and families. In addition, here are some other suggestions that students in Grade 2 could be doing to keep up with their learning at home: 

           

  • Read each day for 20 minutes. You can read on Kids A-Z.  They can also read to a sibling, stuffie, parent or pet or someone else via facetime/skype! They can retell the setting, characters, problem/events, and solution to check for understanding (comprehension) of what they are reading. 
  •  Sign in to mathletics (username and password sent home earlier this year) students can login to their profiles anytime and work from home
  •   https://www.iknowit.com/ is another math website 
  • ABCYa has great literacy and math games (free on desktop or laptop only, I think the app for tablets requires payment)
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga has great resources for moving bodies (and check out the "Zen Den" and "Guided Meditation" materials for mental health and wellness)
  • Students can always journal what they are doing at home 
  • Write a letter to a friend or relative
  • Research a famous place or animal and write about it
  • Make a grocery list, to do list (plan for the day), list of their favourite toys, things they want to do etc. 
  • Write a story (with characters/problem/solution)
  • Read a story and write a book review 
  • Record interesting facts they have learned from reading
  • Check out the many online resources being offered (some zoos are doing daily "creature features" where students get to learn about the animal and then can write about it or research more if they are interested, many museums are offering free virtual tours and aquariums have cameras in the tanks showing live feeds)
  • Cook and bake using measuring cups and spoons, students can write a recipe or the steps they went through to make something or write a review about the results

After spring break, we will provide an additional level of support for all of our students.
