Tomorrow we are celebrating Anti-bullying day, so students are asked to come in wearing pink to show their support against bullying.:)
We began the day writing our homework in our agendas and then discussing as a group different holidays or traditions that we celebrate at home.
For UOI, we discussed what we already know about culture. We then conducted a survey about the different cultures we have in Grade 2 and made a bar graph to show our results.
We then worked in groups to make a brainstorm about the various cultural celebrations/traditions that we know.
During Math, Students were given the nets for a cone, cube, cylinder, square pyramid, triangular prism. They wrote the following attributes on each net:
___faces, ___ edges, ___ vertices, name of solid, I am a 3D shape, I look like ____
After first recess and lunch, students had Music.
Students then had French with Mdm. Stella.
After second recess and lunch, students continued working on explanation writing. Students have already written brainstorms for a mechanical toy that they have invented. Today students began on their rough copies. Students are focusing on the name, how it works, what their mechanical toy can do, what their mechanical toy can do for them or with them, and what it looks like. Students ensured to use as much detail as possible.
