A Note From Mrs. Phillips


On Friday, the class will visit Mast General Store to learn what a general store is, what they sold/sell, and to see many artifacts from the 1800’s that now decorate our Main Street store.  The class will tie in what they have read about the general store in the Ingall’s time to what they see today.  We will walk to Mast General at 9:40am and I welcome anyone who wishes to walk along that is Safe Haven cleared.  Look for permission slips in this week’s blue folder.

As always, especially during this Lenten season, I encourage you to visit us for the school Mass on Wednesdays at 8:30am.  We would love to have more parents attend with your children.

In class this week…

Religion: In religion this week, we will continue to discuss our journey through Lent and how we may continue to grow with God as we reach the mid point.  This is always the hardest part to get past and we will encourage each other to continue with our Lenten promises.

Reading: The class is well into our novel study- “Little House on the Prairie”.  We will continue to learn about Laura and complete comprehension questions based on each chapter.  We were not able to read as far as I would have liked last week, so this week, we will catch up.  I am seeing such growth in their comprehension answers from the first few chapters.  I am proud of them!

Language Arts:   The students will have the last “Little House on the Prairie” spelling list this week and will test next Friday, March 16th.  The class will finish verbs this week and test early next week.

Math:  The class has begun math groups and it is going along very well.   This allows me to work with each student more closely to ensure they are accomplishing what they need before the end of the year.  We continue to work on division concepts in each group with varied practice homework.  I am still testing for multiplication mastery, so please continue to practice your facts.

Science: In science the students began an animal life cycle projects.  Each group is researching a particular species and will present on their life cycle in the form of an Edupuppet.  The class will continue work on pulling important information out of a non-fiction text.

Social Studies:  The students will create an Indian village based on the information we have discussed in class.  The Native American test has been moved to Friday of this week.
