Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2

Reading -    We are reading the story, One Good Turn Deserves Another.  We will be reviewing skills. The students will be doing some of the ELA program in Study Island soon.   

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

   behind  everybody  sorry  brought  minute  door promise      

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.

        conflict  resolve  mope  ramp  pursue  deserve  coax  startle   

      Question of the Week -  How can we work together to solve problems?   

Spelling  -  

     This week we are working on words with the long a spellings, such as train and pay.  


Language -     We are discussing nouns and proper nouns.  We are also discussing joining sentences and using adjectives.  We are writing responses to Thanksgiving stories.  We are doing some other Thanksgiving writing pieces.

Math -  We are continuing our discusstion of the expanded form.  The students are working on number sense and place value. We are also continuing our practice with math facts and subtraction.  The students have also begun writing responses in their math journals. 

        ** Math Games** 

Science -    We have tagged and released all of the Monarchs from our nursery in our classroom.  They are now migrating to Mexico and warmer climates!  We will track their progress.  We have created Ambassador butterflies that were sent to Mexico and other states.

Social Studies and Global Awareness -   During our Monarch discussions and observations we will discuss our impact on their environment.  We will also be communicating with students in Mexico as we track the Monarch migration south this fall.  We will also be communicating with students in other states.  We are also doing some discussion on why we should be thankful.


 ** Tip ** 

 Phonics / Spelling 

When trying to spell a word you don't know, try 'tapping out' the sounds.  Now 
match the letters to the number of sounds.  Practices recognizing spelling patterns which may include blends, digraphs, r-controlled vowels, or dipthongs.  This also works on separating each sound that should be heard separately so you don't jump over a letter when writing it down.

For example:    sip  -  3 sounds (_ _ _) &  3 letters - s-i-p  
However......        ship  -  also 3 sounds (_ _ _)   But... 4 letters sh-i-p
car  -  2 sounds (_ _)  But 3 letters  c-ar
