Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2









Fab Five : (Need to be able to read these) 

  None   



Reading -   This week we are beginning our second book with the story, The Night the Moon Fell.   We are continuing to practice reading strategies and fluency.   The students will be doing some of the ELA program in Study Island.   


Story Words :  (Need to be able to read these)  

   balance  rattle  whisper  canyons  slivers  coral  sway    


Amazing Words- Students don't need to spell or read all of these words.  They just need to know what they mean when they hear them.  These words are in some of our readings this week.


       adjust   unexpected   tease   accent   landmark   quiver   foreign   forlorn   

     Why are some changes difficult?   




Spelling  -  

   This week's words are multi-syllabic words such as doghouse and sunrise.  
  


Note regarding RtI time -   
Individual classroom teachers are responsible for the teaching of reading, math, and writing skills to their own classroom students.  During the 30 min. RtI time students divide up into various groups and go to get some additional reading, math, or writing instruction or skill reinforcement.                          


Language -      The class is learning about  paragragh structure and topic sentences. We are working on nonfictions writing pieces.  We are also learning about words with multiple-meanings. 

Math -   The students are continuing to work on mental math.  All students need to practice their addition and subtraction facts 0-20 at home.  They should practice for speed and accuracy.  The class contiues to  work with trading in addition, also known as regrouping. We are working on understanding fractions.  In addition, the students are reviewing with the concepts of money and time.  We are working on some problem solving in small groups.   We use our math journals for some of our problem solving.
          

        ** Math Games** 



Science -   We are reading and writing about the layers of the Earth, dinosaurs, and fossils. We are continuing to get updates on the Monarch migration and Mexican Monarch Sanctuaries.   
                   
Social Studies and Global Awareness -    Our Symbolic Butterfly from Mexico has arrived!!   We are reviewing what  STARR means.  We are continuing to 'Fill others' buckets'. 

                                                                            

**Tip of the Week ** 

   Some children need to practice number sense and understanding number bonds.  One way to work on this is to give a child a number (within the range the child should know) and have him come up with a number of different ways to get to that number or to break that number up.

 Example -  36
26 + 10 =        38 -2 =       20 +10+6 =
25+11=       46-10=       18+18=  

12
6+6=     7+5=     14-2=     
12+0=     10+2=     4+4+4=
