Students had a fun week catching up with friends and sharing stories from the holidays! We finished typing and illustrating our book reports that were started before the holiday. These are now displayed outside the classroom in the hallway. Next week we will look at the form and function of explanation writing.
In math, we're beginning our exploration of multiplication and division. We're starting out looking at groups of different things and how to group in different ways, including arrays. Next week will involve some games with repeated addition and arrays.
Students did a Book Walk and explored unit books, recording things they noticed and other wonderings. We thought about the connection to maps and how maps help us learn about civilisations. Grade 2's had a Skype call with Ms. Fort who is a high school teacher in the United States. She went on an archeological dig in Russia and shared pictures and her experience with us. Students asked thoughtful questions, and this led into our exploration of Pompeii. We've watched some videos and have started researching in books, and will continue to explore this ancient city next week.
