This week: Schools Around the World

posted Jan 6, 2014, 6:55 AM by Jason Brunken
This week in Grade 2 we are reading the very interesting nonfiction piece called Schools Around the World. This is a book about how children all over world go to school. It gives children a fantastic insight into how the cultures and traditions of different peoples change how they go to school. Also, it helps kids expand their understanding of their world and see that while all schools are different in some ways, in many others, they are very similar. I know the kids will learn a lot from this reading selection.

This week we will also have vocabulary, grammar, reading, and spelling/phonics practice. Please take some time to review the spelling and vocabulary words with your child using the weekly handout sheet below. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Last week, we worked on new letters for our pen pals in Canada. We also prepared Chinese New Year cards for them. We will be mailing them at the end of the week.
