Passion Projects

Hello Grade 2 Students and Families!

I am so excited to launch our last big project of the year… PASSION PROJECTS!!

As discussed in class this morning, each student will be working on a Passion Project. The students were able to choose if they wanted to work independently or with a partner from their class. This project can be on any topic and presented in any way. The possibilities are ENDLESS!!

Some topic examples:
– Animals
– Favourite Book / Author
– Research on a City or Province
– Role Model / Someone you admire
– Family Tree
– Creating your own community
– Creating tutorial videos
– Writing a story / comic book

Some presentation styles:
– Google Slides
– Oral Presentation
– Video
– Blog Post
– Art gallery

In preparation for this project, we have complete two research workshops with Miss Brigitte this month. The first one was on using keywords when doing research and the second was on taking notes in your own words. You can go back to these blog posts to review what we learned with Miss Brigitte. Here is the link for Kiddle to help you get started with your research!

Each student will also have their own Classkick assignment called “Passion Projects”. This is where they will be gathering their ideas and submitting their work for “check-in with Morah Lianna”. Since this is a very personalized project, I will give more guidance and instructions as each students develops their project ideas.

laptop reading*Please note that this is an ongoing project and should NOT be completed in one day!! A formal due date for presentations will be determined after today’s brainstorming/planning period. If we pivot back to in-person learning, this project will be worked on in class.

Save the date and Hebrew homework

Shalom and welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Passover holiday and break!

SAVE THE DATE: Kitah bet will be having their “Chagigat haTorah” just before Shavuot this year. The date is booked for Friday, May 14th at 9am. We hope that you can join us virtually to celebrate our Torah learning. 

HOMEWORK: This term our Hebrew homework will focus more on Hebrew reading and cursive writing. Each night, Monday through Thursday, students will get a small reading text plus an option to either copy 3 of the sentences in cursive or create their own sentences with the words in bold. Feel free to print the cursive letters here.

The homeowrk can be found in the Hebrew workbooks in their backpacks. Please reach out if your child is having difficulty completing the homework. I am happy to make any modifications.

Have a wonderful week!
