Welcome to Grade 2 and 3
Your child is bringing home their entry into the Create A Logo Contest that we have been working on for the last two weeks as part of our media unit. Please sign and fill out the attached permission slip and return it no later than this Thursday in order for your child’s work to be submitted into the contest.
Math – We have been working on identifying, naming and creating various 2D polygon shapes. This week our focus will be on creating congruent shapes using pattern blocks and then identifying the lines of symmetry on a variety of everyday objects and various shapes. Next week we will begin our 3D portion of the unit.
Science – Today your child completed their assessment test for the conclusion of our Forces and Motion unit. Please do not forget that your child is required to bring all of the materials they require to build their toy that uses at least one force in order to make it move. I will supply the tape, glue, staples, scissors, paper etc, however all students need to bring their own supplies such as bottles, boxes, etc. The completed toys will be put on display for a few weeks and then sent home.
Health – We are almost finished our unit on Healthy Teeth. Students have been reminded that they need to take care of their teeth and to brush twice a day, use fluoride toothpaste and visit the dentist every 6 months. This Wednesday they will begin to plan out a poster promoting how to take care of your teeth. They will be using the computer and pictures from the internet to assist them.
Thank-you very much for sharing your little ones with me again this week.
Will be posted shortly.
