God the Creator

Hello 3K Families!

As we launch into our study of nature and biodiversity, we need to be careful about what we read and believe. Many science books will talk about different ideas about how the world came to be. As Christians, it’s important to measure things up with the Bible. What does God’s Word say? Does this fact align with God’s truth? Isaiah 40:28 says, “The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the Earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.” We can not begin to understand all that God is and everything about His creation. We can only have faith that what He says is true. Please continue to have this conversation with your child at home.

Please read through the information on the newsletter for important announcements, spelling words and the memory verse. Have a great weekend and have a Happy Mother’s Day!

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

By His Wounds We Are Healed

Hello 3K Families,

We had another busy week in 3K! The students did a wonderful job hosting Grandparents and Grand Friends on Wednesday and enjoyed a wonderful field trip to Burns Bog on Thursday. There are a few photos under “Fun in 3K” that gives you a peek into those events.

In our Devotions, we have been reflecting on what Christ has done on the cross. Because of the suffering he endured, we are able to experience His love, joy and peace. All we need to do is accept Christ’s gift. Please continue to have this important conversation with your child at home. Please read the newsletter for more information, including instructions in preparing your child for Grade 4. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend! May you reflect on the love of Christ, the power of the cross and the victory of His resurrection! Students will be bringing home an “everlasting” Easter book. They were challenged to share the true story of Easter with someone who needs to hear the Good News! Ask them why the story is “everlasting”.

There are also some photos from our neighbourhood walk posted in “Fun in 3K”. Take a peek at how we thought like scientists and carefully observed the ecosystem in our very own backyard.

Last term, students created advertisements for invented products. Some chose to make posters and others chose to make a commercial. You can watch some of their videos using the following links (Note: videos are unlisted and can only be viewed with the link):

Kevin & Titus

Alex & Isaac

God Bless,

Non-Fiction Books

Hello 3K Families,

The students have been working hard on their Non-Fiction books. Our goal is to have most books finished by Thursday, April 18th. A few reminders:

  • Students are taking the time and effort to do their best. So, if they need more time to finish, they can talk to me about having more time.
  • Some students chose to take their books home to work on. Please make sure that they do not spend too much time on it. They should still be getting the rest and sleep they need after school.
  • Please remind students to bring back their book each day so that they can continue working on them in class.

Thank you so much for your support! Please send me an email if you have any questions.

 

Building Others Up

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 12, 2019

Over the past 2 weeks, we have been talking about the importance of words. A few students helped to demonstrate that while toothpaste is easy to squeeze out, it’s almost impossible to put back. In the same way, once we say something, our words cannot be taken back. Therefore, we need to be mindful of the words we say. Does it help to build others up? Or does it hurt others by tearing them down? Ephesians 4:29 commands us to use self-control while speaking, saying “…only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.” Please continue to talk with your child about this. Have a great weekend!

The newsletter for this week has been posted.

Please check the newsletter for important announcements. There are also some photos from our field trip to the Burnaby Village Museum in the “Fun in 3K” page. The students had a wonderful time experiencing what life was like 100 years ago. When we returned to school, we  had an interesting discussion on whether it would be better to live now (in 2019) or then (1925). One student even pointed out that even though we have so much technology today, sometimes it makes people spend less time together. So hopefully you will be able to spend some quality time together this weekend!

Have a great Spring Break!

Dear 3K Families,

I hope you have a wonderful Spring Break and enjoy this time of rest as a family! If you are travelling, I hope you will be safe. If you are having a stay-cation, I hope it is relaxing.

Also, thank you for your donations! The Grade 3’s did a great job responding to the needs they heard about during their tour of UGM. These donations will be making their way to UGM over Spring Break. Continue to pray that the people receiving these items will experience the love of God in a real and tangible way. See you again in April!

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

 

 

Do What is Right…Live at Peace

In Devotions, we talked about how God calls us to “do what is right” and “live at peace with everyone”. When God calls us to live at peace, this doesn’t just include our family, our friends and those that are easy to like. God calls us to show love even when other people don’t and even when things don’t go our way. This is a difficult calling, but we love because Christ loved us first. He gives us the strength to choose what is right even when others choose wrong.

What does this look like in 3K?

Before I speak (or act), I THINK:

  1. Is it True?
  2. Is it Helpful?
  3. Is it Inspiring (encouraging)?
  4. Is it Necessary?
  5. Is it Kind?

If I am feeling bothered because someone has said or done something that is not right or kind, I:

  1. TALK – Recognize the problem & use a confident voice to tell the other person what is upsetting me. I take responsibility for my actions.
  2. WALK – Find another spot where it is easier to work or play
  3. SQUAWK – If the person continues to bother me in an unkind way, or if a person is hurting me physically, I talk to a trusted adult to get some help.

Please continue to have this conversation with your child at home. Encourage them to communicate well!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! One more week until Spring Break!
