This week we have a short week. Monday is a holiday here in British Columbia.
I always get Guided Reading done with my lowest 2 groups twice a week. That's Green and Yellow Groups below. I am working through Tara West's Early Readers which have 3 levels for Grade One. So these are appropriate for my below grade level Grade Two's. Green is the lowest group, so they are reading her easiest books, and Yellow are just slightly below grade level, so they are reading her highest level. Blue Group are reading at or slightly above grade level, so I'm using Literacy Place from Scholastic, which my school purchased several years ago, and my strongest readers have just started a novel study on Fantastic Mr. Fox.
For Close Reading I have been working through this Close Reading set from Susan Jones. I work through it with Green and Yellow Groups, and let Blue and Red groups work through it independently.
My writing and grammar lessons are pulled from my Valentine's Day ELA unit, and as usual, we are working on the next week from the Steck Vaughn Spelling program for Grade 2.
In Math we are working on addition strategies, in order to work towards addition to 100 in the next few weeks. In Science we are starting up a unit on States of Matter, and in Social Studies we are finishing up a mapping unit with my Flip Flap Book. The American version is available here.
Because of Valentine's Day, we are focusing on arts and crafts for Valentine's Day and will go back to learning about the Elements of Art next week.
