ClassroomEvents Notes




Teacher: Ms Stasiewicz





May is a very important month for the grade 2 students.  On May 6th they received the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist for the first time.  The  children celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Friday, May 4th.  The class worked hard to prepare for these two momentous occasions which will allow them to enter more fully into the life of the Church.  Thank you, parents, for working with your children to learn the Commandments, the prayers, and the Form of Confession.  It was a big job and was well done.





During May we will be celebrating the Month of Mary.  Mary is an important figure in the Catholic religion.  We can honour Her by praying and reflecting on the rosary. We will do this at school but it is also something that can be done within the family at home.





During this last term of school we will be focusing on the math number facts to 18.  In May we will work on #16 and #17.  We will also be working on addition and subtraction with regrouping.  Sheets will be sent home this month to practice these important number operations.


The class is having fun as we study about different shapes in our Shape and Space unit.





We started a new set of bookbags in April.  One book in each set is longer and more difficult. Please check that your child is reading the books and that the sheet is signed each time.  Bookbags are due every Tuesday and Friday. It is important to bring the bags back to school on time because they are passed on to another student on those days.  





Please continue to use this free, educational resource for Math. It  focuses on the concepts we study in class.





In Social Studies we will talk about the life of early settlers to Canada and how they had to look after their needs and wants by themselves.
