OJCS Reading Challenge & BINGO

We have been working away on reaching our goal for the OJCS reading challenge. Each class (2A and 2B) has a goal to read 300 books. 

Some things that are different this year…

  • Students will complete a book review on FlipGrid or a book quiz on Accelerated Reader (in class) before getting to put a tally mark on our challenge tracker!
  • Students are also filling up a BINGO card for the books they read! Today we had our first Grade 2 BINGO winner! 

If your child is finishing books at home, I encourage you to have them complete a FlipGrid book review at home (school e-mail login required) or bring a note into school so they can do it in class and add to our challenge tracker!

UPDATE: We now have a second BINGO winner in Grade 2! So exciting. Who will get BINGO next!?



2A, 2B, General Studies, Reminders

Just some reminders…

Good afternoon Grade 2 parents and students!

Just a few reminders (and 1 exciting update)…

  • Tomorrow is our library day. If you have a book at home that is ready to be returned, please make sure it comes to school tomorrow!
  • New scholastic order forms went home today for 2A and will go home with 2B tomorrow. There is a neat STEAM issue!
  • You can stay up to date on our class by following our grade 2 class twitter accounts! @2Bojcs  @2Aojcs
  • Exciting update... we have new pen pals!! We received our first batch of letters from our new pen pals.. all the way in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We are excited to connect with them through letter writing and Flip Grid!
  • Lastly, Morah Lianna will be away tomorrow (January 15th). She is visiting another private school in Ottawa to observe a few different math teachers and learn more about personalized learning… stay tuned for more information on how we will be personalizing math later this year!

General Studies Homework – Week of Jan. 13

Hello Grade 2 Students and Parents!

New homework tasks for this week are going home today. Based on some feedback, I have provided each student with lined paper (or graph paper) to go with their homework task. Please let me know if you have any other comments or feedback to share about the homework.

Three tasks to choose from this week (due on Monday):

Math – A word problem about cookies (yum!) that requires subtraction and regrouping. 

Social Studies – investigating our community and neighbourhood for different places of worship. As a class, we learned that a place of worship is where people go to pray. 

Science – watch this video and write down some facts you learned.


As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!
