Grade 2

February 13-17

Dear Grade Two Families,

Congratulations! We have completed the first half of the First Communion program! We are four Masses and four meetings down! Your children have been praying, reflecting, and participating excellently as they prepare their hearts for Jesus. I truly appreciate the dedication and support you have given your child throughout this first part of the program. Please make sure all of the pages in the Gold Book for the themes of Belonging, Celebrating, Listening and Caring are completed.

We have also completed our first week of the Reading Log! The students have expressed that they are enjoying reading these books and are always excited to choose new ones to bring home. In class, they have also been learning different strategies to help them practice their addition facts. So far, they learned the counting on, doubles, and neighbour numbers strategies. The children are catching on quickly and I encourage you to continue practicing single-digit addition and subtraction facts with them at home.

Here are the reminders for the week:

Star of the Week: N/A (we will resume next week)

Phonics Skill: N/A (we will resume next week)

Open Parachute Unit (in class): Siblings & Friendships (cont’d)
