Friday News for the Week of October 16-20

Happy Friday!
Did you know today is Big Dip Day at Blue Seal? (I can’t go this month because I’m on a no sugar diet for the month of October…) (sorry parents, I told your kids about it today :) But I told them that if you say no to going, they have to say, "Ok!" :)

Also, there’s a typhoon headed our way ---eek!! I’m not sure what will happen but please check the ocsi website on Monday morning, before you head to the bus or school to see if school is canceled or not!

This week:
Reading - Setting
Encourage your child to tell you the TIME and PLACE of the stories they are reading!

Writing - We practiced how to unfreeze your characters and make your characters come alive by adding dialogue and making them move!

Math - subtracting and more subtracting --- comparing groups “how many more…” “how many less…” subtracting from 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8!

Bible - The story of Joseph! He was his dad’s favorite so his dad gave him a beautiful robe to wear. His brothers were jealous and wanted to hurt him. Instead, they sold him to some traders going to Egypt. They lied to Jacob and told him that Joseph was attacked by an animal. The brothers thought they were done with Joseph forever… Poor Joseph! It seems like that’s so awful! BUT God was with Joseph and God is going to do something amazing through the story of Joseph.

Social Studies - We learned about the country we live in - Japan! We learned that it’s divided into 4 sections. We even practiced writing it in kanji!

If you haven’t signed up for Walkathon yet - please think about signing up this weekend! The deadline to receive the shirt on time is Monday!

Walkathon is SUCH a fun day at OCSI! It’s a chance to celebrate OCSI! First, there will be a 5K walk where you will walk from OCSI to 58 road, then back to OCSI. Afterwards, there will be a Holiday Market in the gym where you can buy all sorts of fun things. There will also be delicious food being sold from all different kinds of people.

If you don’t want to walk in the Walkathon, then please come out for the Holiday Market!! :)
