2nd grade news

Math

In math we talked a lot about telling time, learning what does AM and PM mean and how we tell time the American way and the Polish way. The students learnt to show the time on the clock with hours and minutes.

Science

In science we learnt about dangers to Earth and what can we do to protect our environment: reduce, reuse, recycle, save water, use public transport rather than cars. We made a craft picturing how Earth is in our hands.

These past weeks we had a lot of fun during the in- and out of the classroom activities!

On Wednesday 17/04, we celebrated Easter or the so-called Egg Day. We tried our best at making traditional polish decorated Easter eggs (Pisanki) and participated in an Egg hunt.

On Friday 26/04, we celebrated Earth Day. Together with Grade 3 we prepared an assembly to teach younger students how we can protect our planet and we put our words into action by going to the Kabacki forest and cleaning a nearby clearing.

We also had some normal lessons and received our ACER/ISA Exam results.

In Language Arts we read and wrote some free verse poetry and read some realistic fiction.

In Maths we continued learning about fractions.

In Science we finished learning about Properties of Matter and wrote a Revision of the Unit.

The kindergarten children were busy making dinosaur Easter cards, and nests. They learned the names of animals, and we revised the names of the parts of a plant by observing the changes in our plants. We learned and sang the song I had a rooster. In language arts we learned the sounds ee/or and z, and we worked on our high frequency word list. In maths we started solving maths problems. We revised the names of 3D shapes and counted the faces, edges and vertices of each shape. We also worked on a basket art project. For Earth day we made crafts using bottles and jars.

Many children were sick this week and so we spent our time doing revision. We made a booklet about plants, we learned to draw 3D shapes with charcoal, and we continued our story about Whitewings, the swan. We sang our song I had a rooster. We watched short videos of famous ballet dancers (male and female), and we learned a few steps and stretching exercises. We learned the names of wild animals and played memory.
