Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2

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


Reading -   There is no new story.  We are reviewing stories we've already read.  We are also reading about dinosaurs and the Mesozoic Era.   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)  

   No new words    

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   


Spelling  -  

   There are no new spelling words this week.  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 -      The class is listening to poetry, since April is poetry month.  The students are also writing their own poems.  The class is continuing to learn about adverbs and words with multiple-meanings.  In addition the students are working on completing 'Dino Information Charts'.

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 on trading with subtraction, also known as regrouping. The class is now also learning about measurement and applying their knowledge to objects in and out of the room.  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 have located where each individual butterfly was sent from.  Three came from as far away as Texas, California, and Canada!  We also received a class butterfly from North Carolina which migrated to Mexico.  We are also locating areas around the world where the fossils for the dinosaurs we discuss were found.


**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=
