Grade 2

Week of May 24-28

Hi Grade Two Families,

Yesterday, the Church celebrated Pentecost. It is the official birthday of the Church, and we pray that the Holy Spirit continues to guide us in all that we do. Pentecost also marks the end of Easter and the start of Ordinary Time.

This week, the class will continue learning about the Order of the Mass, with a special focus on the Liturgy of the Eucharist. We will review that during this part of Mass, the bread and wine become Jesus’ body and blood. We will also be going over the steps to receiving the Eucharist so that the students are fully prepared for when they have their First Communion! Although we will have to wait to hear of the finalized plans for this celebration, please be assured that the sanctity of this sacrament will still be present and alive!

Grade Two has also been practicing their addition and subtraction facts up to 20. They created their own “Fact Family Flip Flops” to help them understand how addition and subtraction are related! Starting this week, the students will now be receiving two Math Drills a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays in lieu of Spelling Tests) which will include both addition and subtraction equations. Please take the time to practice their addition and subtraction facts to help their learning.

Additionally, the children have been taking very good care of our caterpillars! Every morning, when the children enter the classroom, they go straight to our Caterpillar Corner to check on how they’re doing! I’m pleased to see the students showing curiosity and taking so much interest in their class pets. Please look on Class Dojo for an update on the caterpillars that are hanging with us!

Finally, the Grade 7s are having their annual Spring Fundraiser. Being inspired by their friend and classmate, Justice Guno, all proceeds of The Encore will be donated to BC Children’s Hospital. Please check your child’s agenda for more information and send in your child’s order form and payment anytime this week. Thank you!
