A Note From Mrs. Phillips
Thanks therefore be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15
My gift is a wonderfully supportive group of parents and amazing children to teach. Thank you for a lovely conference day. I enjoyed speaking to each of you, even in a short time frame. And thank you for sharing your children with me. I continue to learn each day from them.
This month we will have a theme of gratitude. Many of the activities we will do will incorporate this theme throughout. I urge you to discuss gratitude and being thankful with your children at home. This can make for some wonderful dinner or car ride discussions.
In Class This Week…
Religion: In religion this week, we will begin our month long lessons on the saints. In November, each child will research a saint in class and we will create an A to Z saint book to be displayed in the library. We will also discuss the 10 Commandments this week, as the first reading on Wednesday at mass will be about these.
Reading: The class will begin learning about reader’s theater. The class will be broken into groups this week to work on and show a reader’s theater story based on gratitude. We will then showcase our talents to another class.
Language Arts: The students will continue with nouns this week. We will focus on plural nouns and our spelling list will not include vocabulary, but will be all plural nouns. STAR homework will be due Friday and we will test on these words Friday as well.
Math: The class will finish subtraction and test on Tuesday. We will continue our candy corn math this week for practice. After subtraction, we will focus on how to solve word problems (puzzles) and strategies we can use.
Science: In science the students will finish their science lab on floods. We will discuss lightening and hurricanes. The students will test on weather hazards on Friday. Check on Tuesday for a study guide in binders.
Social Studies: The students will begin the branches of our government. We will complete a study guide in class and discuss how a bill becomes a law.
