November 14, 2013 Well, we've been working very hard on developing our writing skills this year in grade 2. One of the first major writing activities that the students completed was about a person that they admire. We used Terry Fox as our class example and model for this writing activity. First we planned, created a rough draft, edited, revised, and published our final copy here. To check out our fantastic work please click either click on the link or select Person That I Admire from the menu above.
August 15, 2013 I'm sure you're all just as excited as I am for the new school year to get underway. Only a few more weeks. On this page students and parents in my grade 2 ETFI class will find resources and information to help them be successful in class this year. You can read about your homework expectations. Yes, its true! There is homework in grade 2, but my hope is that it is a fun and engaging experience for all. As a parent of two young children I know how busy life can get.
