The discovery that our 2.3 classroom is a community is definitely an amazing experience, and now the students see themselves as a big family. They managed to finish our Y2.3 Agreement for the year, that still can be amended at any time according to our needs and they also understood the different responsibilities inside the classroom.
In language we began to access the curriculum by taking little steps. Lots of work was put into the recount process with beginning, middle and end, as well as finding names (titles and subtitles) that would suit the corresponding drawing.
Also this week we had many different activities in mathematics, to elicit attention, increase visual skills and help the students to think in many different ways with numbers and shapes.
When looking at the pictures from this week, choose one to share with your child. Ask him/her to describe what was happening in class when the picture was taken. This will help them to remember their work, what they did in class, and also help with vocabulary and articulation of words.
Here are some pictures from this week:
