A Look at Our World

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on January 19, 2018

Today, during lunchtime, the Grade Threes participated in an experiential activity. They were divided into 3 different groups:

  • The Blue Group was served pizza and juice. They sat at tables and were allowed to have seconds. They were also invited to line up first.
  • The Yellow Group was given water and rice with meat. They sat on chairs and were served second.
  • The Red group was only given rice. They sat on the floor and if they were thirsty, they were asked to walk to the water fountain. They were not allowed seconds.

The room was silent and the students were encouraged to write down what they were observing, wondering and feeling. When we discussed what happened back in the classroom, the one word that summed up the event was “unfair”.

We discussed how their experience is similar to the real world. What students experienced for 30 minutes is what some people feel their whole lives. The students made a connection that there are people in the world with a lot (abundance) and people in the world with very little (scarcity). We talked about how the world’s resources are not shared equally and many people with a lot often waste the things they have. Students were challenged to think of solutions to this problem and were asked to picture how God would want our world to look like.

We will continue talking about these themes of abundance and scarcity this term. Please continue to have this conversation with your child at home. Thank you for your support!

If you have any questions about the activity, please send me an email!

A New Thing

Happy Pajama Day!

This past week, we have been discussing Isaiah 43:18-19a which reminds us to “forget the former things” and instead, to focus on the “new things” God is doing. In our devotions, we have talked about taking inventory of our lives – discerning between the good habits that God wants us to continue this year and the bad habits God is challenging us to get rid of. Only by the strength and power from the Holy Spirit can our lives be transformed!

Jesus Came to Save

Hello 3K Families,

This week, we have been reflecting on John 3:17 which reminds us that God sent Jesus into the world to save us and not to punish us. Because of His great love for us, Jesus chose to take the punishment we deserved, knowing we couldn’t save ourselves. In the midst of the busyness that Christmas brings, let us continue to remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. He is the reason why we have so much to be thankful for.

I hope you have a restful weekend! Please read the newsletter for important announcements: Newsletter – December 11th

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

Prayer

0

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 23, 2017

This week in 3K, we investigated why prayer is important.

  1. It is precious time that we can spend with God to praise Him and thank Him for what he has done.
  2. It shows that we can put our trust in God to meet our needs in His way and in His time.
  3. It gives us an opportunity to care for others by praying for their needs as well.

Please see the newsletter for important announcements and have a wonderful (and safe) weekend!

Thank you for supporting us in our Chapel Presentation! The students worked so hard practicing their parts and memorizing their lines. We praise God for blessing us with His strength and confidence to bring Him glory through our presentation. We hope that you were blessed by the message. May we continue to put aside our fear, anger and jealousy and allow Christ to be the driver of our lives.

If you have photos or videos from the presentation, please send them over to mkuo@myrcs.ca.

Have a great weekend!

Forgiveness

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 10, 2017

Over the past 2 weeks, our memory verse came from Ephesians 4:32 which says: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you.” As a class we talked about how holding on to anger prevents us from allowing God to bring peace and forgiveness into our lives. We forgive because Christ first forgave us and He calls us to an abundant life rich in His love and mercy.

Please check the newsletter for important updates and announcements. The students are excitedly anticipating our Chapel Presentation coming up on November 17th. Be sure that they get lots of rest and please support them if they have lines to memorize. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
