Tuesday was our 100th day of school. K2 started the day with 100 exercises and continued with more 100th day activities spread out across the four K2 classes.
We are readers. Home Reading has started!
Two books will be sent home on Fridays in your child’s communication folders. Please make sure to return those books by the following Friday in order to get two new books.
The books coming home have been self-selected by your child, so please do not think about ‘the level’. Our aim is to help children find their own ’just-right’ reading books, to feel confident as a reader and to ensure she/he has strong understanding of the concepts of print.
- a letter?
- a word?
- a sentence?
- the end of a sentence (punctuation mark)?
- the front of the book?
- the back of the book?
- where to start reading the story?
- spaces between words?
- the title of the book?
- how many words are in this sentence?
(We are trying to reduce the amount of plastic we use at school, so if your child has misplaced the communication folder given at the beginning of the year, instead of giving a new one, you are welcome to use a folder from home or use the library bag)
Raz-Kids! If your child would like to do Raz-Kids at home, you will find the login information on your child’s home reading folder (www.kidsa-z.com)
Mystery Reader! Please pick one day to come in as our Mystery Reader. It will be scheduled for Tuesday mornings (8:10-8:25) OR afternoons (2:55 to 3:10). On your chosen day, come to school with one of your child’s favourite books (in any language). Please DO NOT tell your child you will be coming. Surprises are fun! We’ll be playing a guessing game to try to figure out who the reader is each day. You can wait near the ECC Staff Room (so we don’t see you) and we’ll come get you when it’s time for you to read. PLEASE SIGN UP HERE!
We would like to welcome Taeung and his family to K2B! His first day was on Tuesday.
Happy Birthday, Isis!!! Isis turned 6 on February 1st. We hope you had a lovely day!
