Our Faithfulness Journey is hurrying right along! I can’t believe it’s Friday already!
This week we’ve tested on the Scientific Method. We’ve also been using our observation skills to predict and hypothesize about the content of a quart jar. We had some interesting predictions! Our observations were included as a writing assignment during Work on Writing. Ask your saint about the contents of the jar (or what THEY think the contents are).
Bible is taking us into the New Testament with lessons that God keeps His promises (the promises He made throughout the Old Testament). History will also follow the New Testament route as we learn about the events of Pentecost and the struggles and suffering of early Christians. Look for Bible and History words that will be added to our vocabulary rings.
Addition and subtraction with regrouping is causing a few detours along our journey. Saints are not confident with basic addition and subtraction facts. Regrouping across several place values tends to be difficult. Be sure to practice basic facts (without using fingers for counting). Students should readily know these concepts. One way to practice? Good ‘ole flash cards.
Ask your saint about: *Calendar and Daily Deposits (Who’s made the best and closest prediction for September?)
*New songs being learned in Music and will be shared in Chapel (Have them share the praise routines for these songs.)
* Kickball successes and struggles (How do you work as a team? Are you letting your light shine by displaying supportive behavior towards teammates and opposing players?)
*What’s the color wheel and how is it organized? How difficult was it to create in Art?
* The Mayor’s visit for Constitution Day on September 17 (Did you read the newspaper article on Sunday, September 21?)
In closing, Parent – Teacher conferences will be held on Monday, October 13. If there is a particular time that fits into your work schedule, please let me know. (Students will not attend school on this date.)
As always, worship as a family this weekend. Grow spiritual fruit by planting God’s word within your heart and mind.
