Dear Parents,

It’s been (almost) a month since the new school year started. The children are happy and excited about the new school year. They are now familiar with most of the class routines, especially in the morning when they arrive at school. They are very quick learners! They are currently working hard to listen attentively when necessary and to stay on task. Self regulation is not easy at this age, however, it is a very important skill.

Here is a short video to show the recent weeks of the students’ learning. Enjoy!

Have a nice weekend!

Five Finger Rule

This week has been a week to familiarise ourselves with our reader’s workshop routines and our class library.  Grade 2 readers make lots of decisions to become stronger readers. Having new sets of routines is not easy, but 2F readers are persevering and trying hard. 

 

Please ask (with enthusiasm) what your child has learned about and enjoy a family conversation:

  • What are Good Fit Books ?
  • What is the Five Finger Rule? 
  • How should we treat our books?
  • How can we choose home readers?

Please do not worry if your child does not remember every detail. It’s a lot of information! We will practice this all over and over again.
