A Note From Mrs. Phillips
Wow! Who would have thought as we begun this school year, we would be ending like this? I want to say a huge thank you to all of our parents. You have been wonderful during this time of uncertainty and craziness. Thank you for being patient with me as I figure out the best way to instruct our students and when I goof from time to time. My autocorrect has a mind of its own it seems!
I want you to know we are in this TOGETHER. No matter what, I am here for you and your child. We will rise above this just as Jesus rose above his tomb. Pray for an Easter miracle of healing!
In class this week…
Religion: In religion this week, the class will put both the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy into action. I would like to see the students living out these Works of Mercy while we are at home. Be sure to keep a journal of these acts or post to our GroupMe chat the wonderful things you have been doing!
Reading: The students finish with our “Little House on the Prairie” novel this week. I am sad we will not finish this journey together, but I know the students have been working hard on their reading and questions. Please continue to read silently or aloud to a family member or pet each day as well.
Language Arts: The class will complete a Grammar Garden activity this week reviewing the four main parts of speech. We will continue with our same spelling words until next week. I will let you know how the test will be administered soon.
Math: This week in math, we will continue division practice! I will also be setting up individual Zoom meetings to test for their multiplication facts. I will set up a virtual “success board” for our fact mastery like the one in our classroom. So, keep practicing those facts!!!

Science: In science this week, we will continue to learn about the life cycle of plants. I love the plant pictures you all have been sending in! Keep them coming!
Social Studies: The class will continue with SC explorers this week. All explorer reports will be due next Wednesday, April 1st. Instructions on how to turn them in will be coming. We will fill in our study guides together on a Zoom to be announced.
