This is such an exciting term as we dig straight into growing beans! The Grade 2s are keeping a “Bean Journal” to document each and every change their bean makes on its journey to becoming a green and healthy Bean Plant. It is so wonderful to see the children’s enthusiasm towards writing, and keeping an updated journal.

This Writer’s Day we discovered the spectacular world of using synonyms to keep our stories interesting. It’s quite a task for 8 year olds to stop using the words “nice, good, bad, big and small” , but they accepted the challenge with open arms! The boys and girls then got to write an “acrostic poem” on TREES. Be sure to ask them why trees are an important part of our environment!

We certainly have some budding authors in our midsts here in Grade 2!
