Food Drive – As part of their UOI and action plan, Alister and Aashrith from Ms. Ramcharan’s Grade 2 class, are holding a food drive. These donations will be donated to the local food banks. This food drive will run from now until October 26th. Please bring any non-perishable food items to me and I will hold it until the end of the food drive.

Calendar- the special helpers put up the date, counts down to 100 days of school, and tells us what the weather is like today.

Agenda Read 15 minutes, math review due Thursday, casual day tomorrow, picture day Thursday, ROM trip Friday, spelling test Friday, cursive book page 56


UOI with language focus- Today we looked at what a noun is (person, place, thing or animal). We read some sentences as a class and students had to circle or underline the noun(s). Individually students cut and paste pictures and glued them under person, place or thing. 

Math- Today we reviewed odd and even numbers, ten-frames and word problems. Our main focus was word problems. We went over quite a bit as a class and students had to create their own to read to the class. We had to determine the equation and answer.

Unit of Inquiry- Students finished their drawing of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. We gained knowledge towards what fossils are, what they prove and where they come from.
