This week we highlighted the SDGs in grade two by creating five separate lessons where students had the opportunity to learn about the Global Goals in more detail. The lessons were each led by one of the grade two teachers and the students were combined into groups consisting of all four homerooms. Ask your child more about which SDGs they learned about this week. (They were: Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Reduced Inequalities, and Gender Equality)
This week we discussed the relationship between addition and subtraction by creating fact families. Students created their own fact families and then used them to write word problems. We also used the 100 chart to play a game to give directions to a number by adding or subtracting 10 or 1. This helps students to use 10 as a benchmark number when adding or subtracting larger numbers.
This week we learned more about the purpose of writing a response text by co-constructing a text about a Simon’s Cat video. We also tasted cookies to generate a very large and impressive list of adjectives to use in our writing.
