This week students continued building independence in our Daily 5 routines. They have been retelling stories and also began practicing summarising. New word work routines were also introduced. We even went out the garden to see the changes from Grade 1, and did a little reading outside!
In Math, students are continuing to develop their understanding of place value and using expanded notation. We practiced this in several ways!
Students had their first visit in the Design Studio with Mr. Gallagher! What fun it was to build a tower that could hold a tennis ball! There was planning, drawing a design, looking at others ideas, revisions and then building!
In Unit, students created their first Google Doc to make a chart to organise their learning about communication and relationships! Their first piece of work is on their Portfolios!
Words from the kids:
"My favourite thing from this week was Daily 5. I love writing because you can come up with your own ideas for stories that no one else can make." - Arwyn
"My favourite part of the was the work. Every single work like when we were writing the story in the beginning." - Joyce
"I liked writing in my Daily 5 notebook. I wrote my own kind of stories of The Runaway King and the story of Ronaldo. I like making up my own stories." - Julian
Hmmmm... seems like G2.2 likes writing!
