Merry Christmas everyone!!
We had a great last week of 2015 at OCSI:
In Bible, we finished up the story of Jesus’ birth and was reminded of the real reason he was born as a baby on earth - to grow up and die on the cross for our sins.
In Reading, the students figured out the beginning, middle, and end of a book of their choice.
In Word Work, the students tried to find as many words as they could out of the words “Merry Christmas”
During Spelling, we made an acrostic of the word “Christmas.”
In Math, we reviewed place value, time, and greater than less than.
…. AND on Thursday we had a class party!
Thanks to all the moms and dads that came out to the party. We had lots of fun together by playing some games, making a Christmas tree tape craft, and eating delicous foods together. It was a wonderful day!
I will miss you all over the break, but please enjoy lots of time with your families! I’m headed to Tokyo tomorrow to visit my parents and brothers. :)
We will see you back to school on January 5th!
Important Details over break:
In your child’s folder is a list of spelling bee words. After we get back to school in January, we will have a class spelling bee. The top 3 winners will get to compete in the 1st and 2nd grade spelling bee later on in February. Please study these words with your child over the break!
After we get back to school on Jan 11th is Kite Day - parents are welcome to come and enjoy flying kites with your child. It is a regular schools day and flying kites will only be an hour of the day. Make sure you have a kite!
