 For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son.
John 3:16

     This week our Bible lesson was "Jesus the Savior Is Born." Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to fulfill the requirements of the king's census. While they were there, Mary gave birth to Jesus, the promised Savior. God sent an angel to announce the Savior's birth to some shepherds. They then hurried to the stable to see the newborn Savior. On the way back to their sheep, the shepherds told everyone they met the good news that the Savior had been born. God had His Son be born to save people from sin. We rejoice at the gift of the Savior and gladly tell others about Him! 
     This week we met not one- but 3 Superkids! We met Tic, Tac and Toc who call themselves "triple trouble!" At the end of this unit, another word list will be sent home. Please use those word lists to practice blending sounds together with your child. When their books come home, go through the books with them and let them read what it says! Be sure to visit the Superkids on line portal as well to review our previous Superkids! 
     We have been practicing jumping spaces on number lines during our Math lessons. The students identify where their jump started, if it was a positive or negative jump, how many spaces were jumped and where the jump finished on the number line.
      Our Christmas party is coming up shorty! Please keep your eyes open for notes coming home in your child's folder!
      We will be continuing our Book It! Reading Program this month! When your child returns their monthly reading log completely filled in, they will earn a certificate for a free personal pizza from Pizza Hut. What a deal- great time spent reading together and a free pizza!  
     We have library on Wednesdays. Please have your child's books back in the orange bin by Wednesday morning so they may check out new books. If they do not bring their books back by Wednesday, they will not be able to check out new books.
Have a safe and blessed week!
