What's New in Grade 2: January 20
Here are some highlights of what Grade 2 friends have done over the past two weeks at Yaqan Nukiy School!
We did a short unit on studying the 7 continents! We've been updating a personal atlas to remember all the countries we have learn about in each subject.
We read a folk tale about ancient China called "The Emporer and the Seed" for Read Well - the moral of the story was about being honest and humble.
We started a unit on Instructional Writing, which is extra fun because it is the bossiest kind of writing!
We spent a fun day in Ms. V's class while Ms. Park was on the Spokane trip with the Grade 3s.
The primary students enjoyed a special presentation on Arctic Animals and Climate Change from the Columbia Basin Education Environmental Education Network. See the photo!
We wrapped up our math unit on probability and data by doing a survey of the Grade 1s and 2s of their favourite pets to apply our learning
We read the classic folk tale "Stone Soup" for Read Well. It was a class favourite!
We continued with our instructional writing unit by writing about "How to Build a Snowman". Many of the students had fun testing out their instructions on the playground in all the snow :)
We started a new Science unit on chemical and physical changes. This means lots of experiments are coming our way!
