General Studies Homework – Week of Oct. 25

Hello Grade 2 students (and parents)!

WHAT A GREAT FIRST WEEK OF HOMEWORK! Thank you to all of the parents who assisted with navigating the new General Studies homework routine! Just like last week, you must choose 1 of the homework tasks below and complete it before next Monday. If you’d like to, you can complete 2, 3, or maybe even all 4 of the tasks… BUT you only NEED to do 1! 

Language Arts: Open a new Google Doc and write a short journal entry telling me what your favourite dessert is and why. Don’t forget to share the Doc with Morah Lianna (blue “share” button in the top right corner).

Math: Complete the assigned skills on IXL. (e-mail Morah Lianna if you are unsure of your login information)

Science: Watch this video and leave a comment on the blog with some new facts that you learned!

Social Studies: Choose a holiday you celebrate. How do you celebrate the holiday? Compare it to how your parents or grandparents celebrated the holiday when they were young. Share your comparison with a Venn Diagram on Jamboard

This week we are continuing to focus on (re)learning how to access all of these online platforms and apps!

*I encourage you to complete your work virtually. However, if it is too challenging in your home to do paperless homework, you can access this homework doc and print the required page(s).

see you in class

Who is your favourite character in the book? Why?
Was there anything you didn’t like about the book?

What is the purpose/meaning of the celebration?
Are there any special traditions for this celebration?

This week we are focusing on (re)learning how to access all of these online platforms and apps! The only login information you will need for this week is your OJCS Google Account. The username (OJCS email) and password are the same from last year. Please reach out to Morah Lianna if you need ANY assistance!

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!
