Friday News for Week of March 14-18

Happy Friday!

We had a very different week where we got to participate in Kids Club! The students rotated around learning a Bible story, doing a craft, playing games, and singing songs to learn about being grateful, grace, and faithfulness. Here are some pictures.

This Week:

Writing: We started writing our own Fairy Tale. It started with a story map where we brainstormed and thought of different ideas and then we put it in a template to write our ideas out. Next week we will write our first draft of the story!

On Thursday, our student teacher for the week, read us The Three Bears. The students did a great job thinking of the lesson from that fairy tale.

Math: We are working with harder and harder money and the students are getting faster at counting money! This week we learned about the dollar bill and practiced writing money with the correct notation like $4.45. We also used our base 10 blocks to compare money and the blocks together. I can see the students’ brains moving as they think through these tricky problems!

Bible: We are going through the stories of Jesus’ last days on earth. From his riding into Jerusalem on a donkey to his dinner with his disciples where he took some bread and juice and shared it to them, to the garden where Jesus was praying, and now Jesus has been arrested and all of his friends have run away. Jesus was perfect and never did anything wrong but is wrongly accused where he is convicted to death on a cross. The story seems so sad now, but next week the story will end happy!

Social Studies: Be watching your mail box for something exciting from your child! :)
