Thank you for the productive and focused learning conversations on Wednesday. I feel that it was really beneficial for our students to see that school and home have a strong connection and to communicate about the learning happening in and out of school. Students spent a good amount of time reflecting on their goals and preparing for the learning conversations. We welcome any feedback you might have. Have a fantastic Tet holiday.
Tet Holiday January 24-31. See you back at school on Monday, February 3.
Global Read Aloud Day is Wednesday, February 5. It is a day to celebrate the power of listening to a story. 2D would love to have parents come in and read a story to the class. All languages are welcome! Please email Mr. Kenny if you can come in. Students also encouraged to share a favorite picture book in their native language.
This week we dipped into our How We Express Ourselves Unit-Cultures express their creativity in many ways. Grade 2 started the week off with a field trip to the Temple of Literature and a nearby Tet Market to look for signs of how Vietnamese Tet is celebrated and to learn more about Vietnamese culture. This week we also have four Tet inspried lessons taught by the Grade 2 Teaching Assistants: Ms. Hang, Ms. Hue, Ms. Ha, and Ms. Hoa. We learned some calligraphy, made a lucky money envelope, did the bamboo dance, and made fresh spring rolls.
