Miss Peter's Grade 1 and 2 News

Dear Families,
With just 4 more months left of school, we have a lot to do! 
Numeracy: 2D and 3D Shapes, Doubles and Near Doubles Facts, Estimating and Adding and Subtracting to 100 with and without regrouping. 
Literacy: Reading, reading and more reading, Identifying key information in a story, Story Writing: Beginning, Middle and End, Main Ideas, and Spelling.
Science: Materials and Objects, and ,Objects in Motion
Social: Culture and Diversity, and, Communities 
Health: Mindfulness, Emotions, and Healthy Choices
A little bit more
• Thank you for all of your cooperation. Please continue to read with your child as well as practice their spelling words with them as often as possible. The more words they know the easier it will be for them to continue to make progress with reading! 
• New words will be coming home every Monday once again and then we will have a quiz on these words every Friday. 
• We will be doing an art project to go with our Materials and Objects Unit. If you have an assortment of small objects made of plastic, glass, metal, paper, rubber, rock, etc. that you would be willing to part with, we would greatly appreciate it! If you are sending a few items please make sure they are small (small enough to stay glued on construction paper) and in a container so they don’t get lost along the way. 
If you have any questions, never hesitate to contact me. Feel free to join our Remind as well.
