Mrs. Hastings - Grade 2

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


Reading -    We are reading the first story in our reading books, The Twins Club.  We will be finishing our reading testing  The students will be doing some of the ELA program in Study Island.   

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

   beautiful  front  country  someone  friend  somewhere      

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.

Spelling  -  

    The spelling words are reviewing short vowel sounds and consonants in such words as pest, shack, mist, rag, bib, drop, hum, and clock.  

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 sharing some things about ourselves through writing on posters about ourselves. We are also discussing complete sentences needing a subject and a predicate. 

Math -  We are working on number sense and reviewing numbers 0-100.  We are also discussing the fact that order doesn't matter in addition (4+5 =9 and 5+4=9).  The students have also begun writing responses in their math journals. 

        ** Math Games** 

Science -    We are very excited to have an active Monarch nursery in our classroom.  We have tagged and released 4 Monarch butterflies.  We are discussing the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly, as well as their migration.
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   During our Monarch discussions and observations we will discuss our impact on their environment.


 **Tip of the Week ** 
 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
