Hi Grade Two Families, To practice our addition, we played another variation of war: Addition War! They are slowly improving on their mental addition and card games are a fun way to practice! Happy playing!
Hi Grade Two Families, We played Crazy Eights! The class needed some gentle reminders to only play a card on their own turn. Many were developing their strategies to try to win the game. Happy playing!
Hi Grade Two Families, We played Closest To on Friday. We used our Math brains a lot while playing to figure out which numbers are close to each other and which ones are further away. The partners got to work together to talk about why they thought their number was closer or further away. Happy […]
We played 2-Digit War on Friday. It’s a lot like War but instead of one card, we used two! We read the the two cards as two-digit numbers and looked for the biggest number. For an extra challenge, you can add the 10s in and form some 3-digit numbers. Happy playing!
Hi Grade 2 Families! We reviewed what even and odd numbers are and then played “Even or Odd?” It required a bit of memory and recognizing which numbers are even and odd. They did a great job playing with one another and supporting their friends. Happy playing!
We played Sevens on Friday to help build our number sense. The Grade 2 students persevered and kept playing even if many of the decks turned out to be incomplete. Here’s to hoping you have complete decks at home 🙂
Hi Grade Two Families! Here is what we have in store for us from now until March! If you have any ideas or expertise in any of these areas (landforms, matter, different cultures, etc.), please send me an email so we can share it with the whole class. Happy learning! 🙂
We played Rolling Stone on Friday. It is a fairly simple game but we were able to play with more people and try different strategies. Some would get close

Hi Grade 2 Families! We played Slap Jack on Friday. The students got very excited, but were gentle when they placed their hands down. It’s an easy game but a fun one to play!

We built Card Towers on Friday! We looked at different pictures of card towers and watched this video to get some inspiration and ideas. Before we started building, we remembered what Mojo said about making mistakes and the power of yet! Once we got building, some of us found it easy, but some of us found […]
Hi Grade Two Families, The class played Elevator last Friday! I was away so I unfortunately don’t have any photos – but I hear they enjoyed the game! I hope you do too! Happy playing!
We played Trash on Friday! It’s a quick, fun game that practices our number sense. Happy playing!
This week’s card game was Old Maid! However, I learned different students knew how to play the game but called it something else, like Turtle! It was excellent practice for their fine motor skills as they tried to hold up many of the cards while they picked out the pairs, but they were able to […]
Hi Grade Two Families, After a brief hiatus we were able to play Card Game Friday again this week! We played Snap. It is a similar to War but looks for pairs instead of the order of numbers. Happy playing!
Hi Grade 2 Families, Our Spelling program has begun! We do a “Check-In” on Tuesday to see what words they know and what don’t know so we can practice the ones they don’t know. Each student has a different spelling list to best support and help their learning. A new list will be sent our […]

Hi Grade 2 Families! Every (or almost every) Friday, we play a card game. Sometimes we learn a new one or other times we practice one we’ve already learned. Card Game Friday is a great way to practice many different math concepts and social skills. We usually play the games in pairs or in small […]

This is the Act of Contrition the children will be saying before their First Confession. A copy was sent home before the break. Please practice it with your child as they will have to recite it by memory by next week.
Hi Grade Two Families, We talked about our conscience being a gift from God to help us decide wrong from right. Before we enter into the Sacrament of Confession, it is helpful to examine our conscience to know where we have sinned and what we can do better. The children were sent home with a […]
