Friday News for Week of October 11-14

Happy Friday!

We had another fun week at OCSI!

This Week:
Reading - We continued to focus on Mo Willems as an author and illustrator and we read the Elephant and Piggy books. There are SO many of them and they are SO funny! We also did lots of writing with Elephant and Piggy books. We wrote our own words in a speech bubble, and wrote our own stories and used speech bubbles in our stories. We finished up the books with “We are in A Book” where Elephant and Piggy actually talk to the reader! SO much fun!

Math: This week we continued through subtraction. We did a fun lesson on subtracting 0 and subtracting all like 4-4=0. I even challenged the students with 43-0= and 43-43= and they knew it! Great job students!

Bible: We learned the crazy story of how Jacob took his brother’s blessing. Esau was really mad! It’s crazy how God used this story as part of his plan to send a Savior through the story of Abraham, Isaac, and now Jacob. Here’s a fun video we watched to help tell the story.
God's Story: Jacob and Esau from Crossroads Kids' Club on Vimeo.

On Thursday we had our first all school assembly. We looked AWESOME in our orange T-shirts. We also learned about the Walkathon coming up on November 12th. Some information was sent home today about Walkathon, so please look over it and email me if you have any questions. It’s a little bit different this year - only 6 kilometer instead of 20 kilometer so I hope everyone can participate. It should be a very fun day!
