Dear Grade Two Parents,
Happy Transitions Week! Students enjoyed celebrating all they have accomplished this year in grade two and are excited for their move to grade three, whether it is at UNIS Hanoi or a different school around the world. Students staying at UNIS visited one of the grade three classrooms and learned about the highlights of grade three. Students moving on celebrated their time here in Hanoi by decorating ribbons and creating a beautiful banner.
- Tuesday, June 9 is the last day of swimming for Grade Two

For our final week of inquiry into How We Express Ourselves, students learned about Native American totem poles as a form of cultural expression. Throughout the week, students viewed, read, and discussed how and why totem poles are made, and what they mean. Students then created their own totem poles based on their values and personal iceberg.
In math, students investigated arrays and repeated addition as building blocks for multiplication. They created a birdseye view map of a zoo, using arrays to design rectangular enclosures for their favorite animals.
In reading this week, students continued to practice reading with expression and fluency as they enjoyed performing fairy tales through Reader’s Theater. Ask them to tell you about the role they played. In writing, students learned about and wrote different types of poetry.
