Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2

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


Reading -    We are continuing to practice reading strategies and fluency.  We will also continue to practice using the glossary.  The students will be doing some of the ELA program in Study Island.   

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

   No new words - Review     

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.

        No new words - Review   


Spelling  -  

    No new spelling words.  We are reviewing spelling patterns.  

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 -      Students will be reviewing some of the grammar we have learned this year.

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.  We will do some timed tests to check our mental math facts.  The students will also complete a Number of the Day piece for the portfolios.  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 continuing to get updates on the Monarch migration and Mexican Monarch Sanctuaries.  This week we will are also learning more about the plant life cycle. 
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We have been locating areas around the world where paleontologists have found the fossils of the dinosaurs we've been researching.  We are following the northward migration of the Monarch butterflies.


**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=  

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