Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2

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


Reading -   This week we are rereading the stories in Book 1.   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 - 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  

    No new question  

Spelling  -  

  No spelling words  

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 discussing handwriting expectations and letter formations.  Our lessons are working on suffixes for comparative (er) and supperlative (est) endings.  We are also discussing compound sentences.  The class is learning about  paragragh structure and topic sentences.  

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. 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 beginning discussions and readings about forest wildlife.  The students are researching information on a certain forest animal and beginning to gather and organize information. We are continuing to get updates on the Monarch migration and Mexican Monarch Sanctuaries.   
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We are discussing President's Day.  We will have winter carnival activities on Friday.  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=  

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