A Note From Mrs. Phillips
Monday we will have a beautiful ceremony honoring Mary. I encourage you to come if you can. The procession will begin at 8:30 at the school. Please send POTTED flowers with your child this year. We will plant them with our classes around the school yard in the afternoon.
Friday is FIELD DAY!!! Yay! I am excited for another fun filled day. It will be super hot, but I have taken this into consideration when planning the events and there will be plenty of water and cool pop breaks. Be sure to send extra quarters with our child so they can buy those cool pops! (Their first one is free.)
In class this week…
Religion: In religion this week, the class will continue learning about the month of Mary. We will focus on her life and what an amazing woman she was. What prayers and names do we call Mary? What songs have been written about her? We will recite and sing many of these on Monday at the Rosary.
Reading: The class will work on writing our very own poems! The class will learn about various poems such as limericks, a haiku, and diamante poems.
Language Arts: The students will continue our grammar review with diagramming sentences. Each week we add something else to our diagramming. NO spelling this week!
Math: We will begin fractions this week! The class will look at graphic representations on fractional parts.
Science: We will begin an extensive unit on living things. This unit will continue throughout the rest of the year and we will look at life cycles, inherited and environmental traits, survival adaptations, habitats, and fossils. We will look more closely at food chains and webs this week.
Social Studies: The class will continue the colonization of South Carolina and look at our Hugenots, English Jews, Germans, and Scots-Irish settlers. Each student will fill out a study guide just like the explorers one.
