THIS WEEK

-The children enjoyed some leprechaun fun along with their reading, writing and math activities.  We counted gold, read a book about leprechauns, learned a bit about Ireland and St. Patrick, tried to catch some tricky leprechauns with leprechaun finders, and wrote questions we had for those tricky fellows.  On Friday we got a wonderful package and letter from a Mr. Leprechaun.  The box said “from Ireland”.  Was it real, or just a wee bit of fun?!?

-Our Bible story was about Jesus healing the paralyzed man (Mark 2:1-12).  We want your child to know that, through faith, we can know and believe that Jesus is true God, able to heal our bodies and our souls.

NEXT WEEK

-It’s the annual kindergarten trip to Hawaii.  Please read the special note in the Friday Folder  with reminders about these special days.  All donations are due on Monday unless otherwise indicated.

 Snack Reminder: Monday-Mrs. Johnson, Tuesday-Evelyn, Wednesday-Dhereck, Thursday-John, Friday-Evan.

-We will meet with our 8th grade buddies on Friday for some rocket fun.

That’s all for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Jesus Loves You!

-We followed up on our force and motion learning with some magnet fun.  There was magnet fishing, car races and mazes and free exploration of magnets.  We wrote about what we learned in our journals.  We reviewed 3D shapes for math and practiced our March sight words in reading.  For Jesus time we had the story of the widow’s mite.  We want your child to know that we can trust God to take care of all our needs, just like the widow in the story did.

-Our topic this week was dental health.  The children were busy reading, writing, and using numbers as we explored our topic.  We also reviewed February sight words and are ready to learn new words.  In math we started looking at 3D shapes, and we learned a poem to help us remember the names of the shapes.  We also met with our 8th grade buddies to play Candy Land.

-For Jesus Time we had the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand.  We want your child to know that God sent Jesus to care for all our needs, including eternal life.
