Grammar has been a big focus in Grade 2 as we only have 1 more term before beginning Grade 3. Many students still need reminding to use capital letters and full stops but this is certainly improving. We understand the use of commas (a small pause in a sentence and for writing lists). We have written some amazing cinquain, acrostic and diamante poems as well as reading poems with rhyme and use of similes. For example, the day was as cold as ice. The knives were as sharp as lion’s teeth. The students loved looking at different ways to make writing sound more creative and interesting.
