ACE Strategy Groups
To all parents of 2nd grade students,
We are working together with the classroom teachers to provide additional learning opportunities for students. This is a wonderful way for kids to work on various skills in small strategy groups. Your child might be receiving this small group support in reading, writing, and or math. These groups are very fluid and students will be able to move in and out of the group as needed. We are very excited about being able to give this extra support on A, C, and E days for 20-30 minutes. If you have any questions about these strategy groups please feel free to contact one of your grade level support teachers.

From our Counsellor
In 2nd grade guidance this week, the children learned that empathy means feeling or understanding what someone else is feeling. We talked about and named a variety of feelings, distinguished between comfortable and uncomfortable feelings, and learned that people can have different feelings about the same situation. We also discussed how there is no such thing as a right or wrong feeling, and that feelings can and do change all of the time. The students used clues from people's faces, bodies, and the situation to determine how they might be feeling.
Our guidance lessons are one important way that we are purposely teaching our Culture of Care to the students of ISB. There will be homework coming home for this lesson, and we thank you in advance for your support!
