My apologies for not blogging this past week. It snuck up and me and I forgot. Thankfully you are all on the ball and figured things out on your own. Many thanks for your understanding and patience.
Today I remembered to blog! There are several things of note coming up in the next two weeks.
NO SCHOOL: on Monday, February 18th. Enjoy Family Day together with your loved ones!
Chapel: 1D Chapel is coming up! We will be presenting on Friday, March 1! Today we started our chapel rehearsal by reviewing the story of Jesus being tempted in the desert. Our chapel focus will be on keeping our thoughts on God and making right choices. Students will act out the three scenarios of Satan tempting Jesus in the desert. We have begun learning our chapel verse Phillipians 4:8. You can ask your child to show you our actions!
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Our class has been working hard the last few weeks to learn about making right choices. Students have really listened and taken our lessons to heart. This is evident in how they are making good choices to focus on their work at learning times, and making good choices to include, share and follow rules during playing time. We will be creating some iMovies for chapel based on our students’ experiences in the classroom.
100 Days: on Wednesday, February 20th, we will be celebrating 100 days at school! Please help your child choose 100 SMALL items to bring that day for math activities. We will be counting and sorting these items to show 100 in different ways. These 100 small items should fit easily into a sandwich size ziploc bag. Example items could be beads, cheerios, pasta, buttons, etc.
Math: we have begun learning about subtraction as it follows naturally from our addition practices. Students will be telling and acting out subtraction stories to demonstrate their understanding of subtraction as “taking away”, “fewer”, “less”, and “smaller”.
Student-led Conferences: are coming up on Wednesday, February 27th. Please make sure you have signed up for a time slot. Students are excited to share with you what they have learned. They get to be the teacher now!
