This week, we explored and consolidated our understanding of measurement, including length, weight/mass. Students used tools around the classroom to measure different objects and then used balance and kitchen scales to explore mass and weight. Ask your child about weighing pumpkins! Next week, we will finish off with a look at volume and capacity, before moving onto Shape & Space.
On Monday, students explored changing states of matter. We then visited the Grade 6 science lab to observed an experiment with water. Students were split into three groups, and buddied up with the Grade 6 students who explained the experiment and talked them through each step. Grade 2 students asked questions and recorded their observations. After watching a Brain Pop Jr video about the scientific process, we then transferred our observations to a science lab report. More experiments will be happening next week, as we continue to explore the changing states of matter and how this affects our lives.
In literacy, students finished off their recount from the October holiday. We also spent time exploring cause and effect in different stories. We first started with the book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and then students identified cause and effect in their own books during Read to Self and Listen to Reading. Next week we will explore inferencing.
We are 7 and 8 year old students who live in Singapore. Our teacher, Ms. Luttrell, will be helping us write blog posts throughout the year!
