Friday News for the Week of March 26-30

Happy Friday!

Today was Culture Fair where we got ‘passports’ and we traveled around to the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms to learn about different countries.

We also got to eat lunch outside!

This week for reading we did a Reader’s Theater!
The title was Did You See Chip? The students had fun playing their parts with the costumes and reading the scripts.
We also practiced speaking clearly and smoothly.

Here are the videos:

Writing: This week we were writing fairy tale stories. We didn’t quite finish, but I’m excited to finish them after spring
break and share them with you. :)

Math: We finished Chapter 7 on graphing! The students and I had so much fun on this unit. We took surveys in class
and made tally charts, bar graphs, and picture graphs. Way to go 1st graders!

Bible: We took a break from David and jumped to the story of Jesus’ last days on earth - the Holy Week, or some people call it Passion Week. It’s a very intense story of what lead to Jesus’ death on the cross,
and though it seems like the story ends there in heartbreak - it doesn’t, it was so wonderful to tell the students
how Jesus resurrected (was alive again!) and defeated death, returned to heaven and is still there!

This Sunday is Easter Sunday - if you have a chance, I’d like to invite you to an Easter church service. Here’s some around Okinawa:
