A Note from Mrs. Phillips

Happy Thanksgiving!  We have a short week this week and many of you will be out of town for either one or both of these days.  I wish everyone a safe and blessed holiday.  I was reminded this past week how valuable our families, both born into and chosen, is.  Hug your children.  Read to your children.  Listen to your children.  Enjoy your children.  Love your children.

We are all blessed in so many ways, so this week take time to thank God for each of these blessings and teach your children to do the same.  We have a “thankful tree” on our dining room table and during November each time we think of something we are thankful for, we add it to the tree.  It is becoming quite full!  I truly hope you enjoy each moment this week and cherish all you are blessed with.

In Class This Week…

Monday and Tuesday- We will finish our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book study, begin plural nouns, practice our multiplication, finish our weather unit, finish our SC regions unit and presentations, work on our saint projects, and discuss being grateful for all we have.  We will also have a bit of Thanksgiving fun!  Our spelling test is on Tuesday.  There will not be any spelling or STAR homework this week other than to study and the first multiplication packets are due Tuesday if they haven’t been turned in yet.
