It was a great Tuesday in Grade 2! We started out with our rhyme time activity. Our word today was bag. Our spelling word was "investment". We did a "First," for "How to Call a Duck", and we doodled a duck.
We talked about contractions in language arts. What is a contraction? I don't know if I can think of any contractions? I can not. I can't. Wait, maybe I just did! We did an activity on contractions and talked about checking for understanding when we buddy read. We did a buddy read and some guided reading groups with Mrs. MacDonald and myself.
After recess we went to Mrs. Hill's room to practice for our Remembrance Day song and we also played a math skip counting game with both classes! We came back to the room and did a math listening quiz on nickels and dimes. We talked about grouping money and counting up our 10's before our 5's. We did a money counting sheet and went outside.
After lunch we had PE with Mrs. MacFarlene. Was today Tally Tuesday? Then we went to the computer lab. We worked on our digital art using the Paint Program. Did you finish your apple tree on the hill?
We finished off the day in the classroom doing music. We talked about the difference between singing high and low and singing louder and softer. We also looked at notes on a staff in music. I signed everyones agenda and we went home for the day.
Get lots of sleep tonight, dress warm, and I will see you in the morning!
