Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2









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

  none    



Reading -   
This week we are reading and discussing stories about fossils!  We are also reading a story, Signmaker's Assistant.   


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

   afternoon  blame  signmaker  idea  important  townspeople  


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.


       apologize  judgment  scold  protest  citizen  hoard  interrupt  troublemaker      

   Our question of the week - 

  How can we be responsible when we make a mistake?   




Spelling 
         Review of patterns such as aw, au, augh, and al.  Examples are walk,  naughty, raw. and auto.  

         



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 -    We are working on Study Island using ipads.  We are reviewing compound sentences and spelling patterns.  We are aslo working on contractions.

Math -   The students are continuing to practice mental math strategies and measuring skills.  The class is still working in their math journals, as well as on ipads with Study Island. We are also finishing our work with  measurement.

          

        ** Math Games** 



Science -   We recieved letters and a Very Special Monarch from Mexico.  We also recieved another Very Special Monarch from a second grade class in Virginia.  Along with those letters we had 10 other 'Monarchs migrate' from other states such as Minnesota, Texas, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, and other states.   We are continuing to monitor the actual monarch progress north.   We are discussing the layers of the Earth and how it's changed over time.  We are also learning about fossils.
                   
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We are continuing our 'Bucket Filling'.
