A Note From Mrs. Phillips
What a first week back! The students were troopers this week as I was not feeling 100%. They really are a special group of children. I pray for health and wellness for everyone this beginning to the new year.
This week, the class will focus on MAP testing and F & P reading testing. Our goal is to have everyone complete by the end of this week! We will test our reading MAP on Monday morning and math MAP on Wednesday morning. There is no Mass this week, as our priests are on retreat, so informal regular uniform is fine on Wednesday so the students are comfortable testing.
In class this week…
Religion: In religion this week, the class will discuss the Presentation of our Lord at the temple.
Reading: The students will continue to focus on smaller short story comprehension skills this week as we prepare for both MAP testing (next week) and reading fluency and comprehension testing with F & P.
Language Arts: The class will continue nouns this week, specifically practice with possessive nouns. There will not be any spelling this week. This will resume next week after testing is complete.
Math: This week in math, we will continue multiplication! I recommend purchasing a set of flash cards to keep in backpacks and to study each night. The Dollar Tree has perfectly acceptable ones.
Science: We will continue our weather unit! We will continue to learn about weather hazards and how we can prevent damage from them.
Social Studies: The class will continue our South Carolina regions this week! Each student will be creating a study guide for the regions as we go along.
