Liquids, Solids, Gases… OH MY!

In Science class, we have been exploring states of matter over the last couple of weeks. Last week, we learned about the changes in states of matter (for example: solid turning into a liquid when heated)…. and today, we got to see it in action!

Morah Lianna explained that she was going to boil water and pour it over ice. All of the Grade 2 students had the opportunity to make predictions on our Jamboard…

“What do you think will happen to the ice and water?”

We were thrilled to see that most of our predictions were correct! It was fun to watch the water bubble as it boiled and it was crazy to see how fast 4 or 5 ice cubes melted! We were even able to see the steam coming out of the kettle!

Keep the discussion going at home! Next time you are boiling water for pasta, pouring a glass of water with ice, or even bringing snow into the house on your boots, ask your children to tell you about the different changes in states of matter that they notice!

Week of Dec. 14

Hi Grade 2 Families!

I hope you had an amazing weekend filled with Chanukah celebrations! As it is still Chanukah, your evenings may be filled with deep frying, candle lighting and dreidle spinning – so there is no official General Studies homework. Your child can always use the General Studies Choice Board or the Trilingual Choice Board if they are missing homework time this week! Both choice boards can be found on the distance learning page of our blog.

Here are some other reminders to get you through this week:
-Tuesday at 7:00pm we will have a virtual OJCS Family Hanukkah Celebration. We hope you can join us via this live stream link
-Friday is a dress down day! We are raising money for Sit With Me Dog Rescue. This is a special dress down day because it’s a PJ day and we will be having a pancake party in Kitah Bet during the 1st period. Please send some fruit for your child to have with it.

General Studies Homework – Week of Nov. 16

This week all of the Grade 2 students have the same homework task! They have all been assigned a variety of graphing skills to practice on IXL (the Math website we use). 

On the sheet in the red homework folder, you will find a QR code for our IXL OJCS login page, a screenshot showing the students exactly where to get the skills that I have assigned (rather than the IXL recommendation wall), and a reminder of their username and password.  

I know IXL can be fun for adults, too! However, this is a friendly reminder that you already passed Grade 2 Math… so make sure your child is completing his/her work independently!

We are DIGITAL CITIZENS!

Just because we can’t visit Miss Brigitte in the Library for workshops, it doesn’t mean we can’t learn from her!! Over the last 2 days, 2B and 2A have had special virtual workshops all about digital citizenship with Miss Brigitte. We learned that a good digital citizen is someone who uses technology safely and responsibly. 

Miss Brigitte shared this song and video (from Common Sense Education) to help us remember! We are excited to learn all about online safety… especially because we are going to get ready to start tweeting and maybe even blogging!
