A Note From Mrs. Phillips


Midlands Gives is this Tuesday!  Get excited!  Please consider donating to our school on this day.  Information went home in last weeks Tuesday folders.

MAP Testing is this week.  Our class will test on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.  Please be sure your child gets plenty of rest, has a great breakfast, and especially tomorrow, a great lunch.  We will be testing after recess tomorrow.  I am eager to see their progress!  There will not be any spelling and minimal homework this week due to testing.

In class this week…

Religion: In religion this week, we will continue our discussion on Genesis and how God created the world.  How can we protect what He created?   How can we love what He gave us?

Reading: April is poetry month!  This week, the class will focus on similies, metaphores, and onomatopeia.  We will continue writing each and every day.

Language Arts:   The students will continue adjectives this week and continue working with them while writing our poems. We will focus on noun compliments.

Math:  The class will finish fractions this week.  I had anticipated finishing last week, but the class needed an extra day.  We will review tomorrow and test on Tuesday.

Science: In science the students will learn about traits in plants this week.  We will break plants down and learn how and why they look and smell they way they do.

Social Studies:  The students will begin settlers this week!  We will learn all about how South Carolina became a more civilized state and our towns were created.


REMINDERS: and lots of them!
