Writing: Students have been learning how to write a Persuasive text. They have been doing really well at backing up their reasons for trying to convince people.
We have also been working on showing our own Voice when we write and making sure we know how to organize our ideas before we start any writing task.
We will be finishing up with Persuasive writing next week, then we move on to Writing to Entertain
We are working on all Comprehension strategies and focusing on Determining what is important from what we read and Making Inferences.
Students should practice reading out loud at home. This will help with their Reading Fluency.
We are working on Money concepts to 100 cents. We are also working on Telling Time. Students will have a Quiz on Money and Time next week.
We move on to Area and Perimeter middle of April.
Students are encouraged to keep practicing adding and subtracting with and without regrouping at home.
We are learning about 3 States of Matter: Solids, Liquids and Gases. We will be watching videos and doing experiments in class.

Dear Grade 2 Families,
Please note that I will be away from the class until November 12th, 2018.
In my absence, the students are very fortunate to have Ms. Gray as their teacher. Ms. Gray currently teaches at our own Emerald Meadows School Age program and is very familiar with our school and students.
Ms. Gray and I have spoken and she will continue teaching the lessons and curriculum set out in our Grade 2 long range plans. I know this will be a wonderful experience for the students and I know they will enjoy having Ms. Gray teaching them.
I look forward to class updates from Ms. Gray and to hearing about student experiences when I return to school in November.
