Teaching Grade 2!

The year is almost complete with one more month to go. I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in the learning process of many topics with a grade two class. I designed, developed, delivered and assessed while collaborating with the Grade 2 Teacher, lessons and mini units in Language (Verbs, Antonyms, Synonyms, Writing Friendly Letters,  How to Write a Fairy Tale, and 2 Stars and a Wish about fellow classmates’ Fairy Tales), Math (Estimating and Counting Money,  Solving Money Problems using Addition and Subraction), Health (Making Healthy Food choices, making a healthy meal using the 4 food groups, Food at Celebrations, and Safety at Home and at School) and Science (Creating a toy using simple machines). I used techniques which involved multimedia, skits, think-pair-share, brainstorming, group discussions and encouraged inquiry based learning. I also supervised and organized students on a field trip to Heartlake for a 'Water and its Recyclability’ learning experience.
