What's Happening!

Take a look at what we are working on!  I've also included the South Carolina Standards that we are covering. 

Reading: Literary Text

Meaning and Context (MC)
Standard 5: Determine meaning and develop logical interpretations by making predictions, inferring, drawing conclusions, analyzing, synthesizing, providing evidence, and investigating multiple interpretations.

5.1 Ask and answer literal and inferential questions to demonstrate understanding of a text; use specific details to make inferences and draw conclusions in texts heard or read.

5.2 Make predictions before and during reading; confirm or modify thinking.

Meaning and Context (MC)
Standard 8: Analyze characters, settings, events, and ideas as they develop and interact within a particular context.

8.1 Read or listen closely to:
a. compare and contrast characters’ actions, feelings, and responses to major events or challenges;

Writing

Meaning, Context, and Craft (MCC)
Standard 3: Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective techniques, well-chosen details, and well- structured event sequences.

3.1 Explore multiple texts to write narratives that recount a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events; include details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings; use temporal words to signal event order; and provide a sense of closure

Communication

Meaning and Context (MC)
Standard 1: Interact with others to explore ideas and concepts, communicate meaning, and develop logical interpretations through collaborative conversations; build upon the ideas of others to clearly express one’s own views while respecting diverse perspectives.

1.1 Explore and create meaning through conversation, drama, questioning, and story-telling.

1.2 Apply the skills of taking turns, listening to others, and speaking clearly.

1.4 Participate in shared conversations with varied partners about focused grade level topics and texts in small and large groups.

1.5 Explain personal ideas and build on the ideas of others by responding and relating to comments made in multiple exchanges.

 

Number Sense and Base Ten

The student will:

2.NSBT.2 Count by tens and hundreds to 1,000 starting with any number.

2.NSBT.4 Compare two numbers with up to three digits using words and symbols (i.e., >, =, or <).

Algebraic Thinking and Operations

2.ATO.2 Demonstrate fluency with addition and related subtraction facts through 20.

Measurement and Data Analysis

2.MDA.6 Use analog and digital clocks to tell and record time to the nearest five-minute interval using a.m. and p.m

2.MDA.7 Solve real-world/story problems involving dollar bills using the $ symbol or involving quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies using the ¢ symbol.

Earth Science: Weather

2.E.2: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the daily and seasonal weather patterns.2.E.2A. Conceptual Understanding: Weather is the combination of sunlight, wind, precipitation (rain, sleet, snow, and hail), and temperature in a particular region at a particular time. Scientists measure and record these conditions to describe the weather and to identify patterns over time. Weather scientists (meteorologists) forecast severe weather so that communities can prepare for and respond to these events.

2.E.2A.1 Analyze and interpret data from observations and measurements to describe local weather conditions (including temperature, wind, and forms of precipitation).

2.E.2A.2 Analyze local weather data to predict daily and seasonal patterns over time.

2.E.2A.3 Develop and use models to describe and compare the effects of wind (moving air) on objects.

2.E.2A.4 Obtain and communicate information about severe weather conditions to explain why certain safety precautions are necessary.


2-1.1 Identify on a map the location of places and geographic features of the local community (e.g., landforms, bodies of water, parks) using the legend and the cardinal directions.

2.ATO.1 Solve one- and two-step real-world/story problems using addition (as a joining action and as a part-part-whole action) and subtraction (as a separation action, finding parts of the whole, and as a comparison) through 99 with unknowns in all positions.
