Noah's Ark was our Jesus story last week. A long time had passed since Adam and Eve and their sons Cain and Abel had lived and the world became corrupt. Many, many people sinned and no one except for Noah and his family believed in God. God told Noah that he was going to send a flood and that he should build an ark so that him and his family would be saved. God also told him to build it big enough that it would be able to fit his wife, 3 sons and their wives and 2 of every kind of land animal and bird. When the ark was ready they boarded it two by two. It then rained for 40 days and 40 nights. Once the rain stopped Noah sent out a dove to find dry land. He returned to the ark as he had found no where to rest. Then a few days later Noah sent out the dove again and he returned carrying an olive leaf. Noah knew that he had found land meaning it was safe for them to get off of the ark. God sent a rainbow as a promis that he would never ever send a that much rain again. This week we are learning how Abraham prayed for a son.
Last week we reviewed the letter Cc and Oo and then learned the letter Gg. We learned the sounds it makes and how to write both the upper and lowercase Gg. We did a fun treasure alphabet match where some kids put the uppercase letters, which were on treasure chests, in alphabetical order and then a few of the other kids took the lowercase letters, which were on paper coins, and matched them to the treasure chests. We also finished the week my doing our letter G journal. This week we are onto the letter Aa.
During Math we focused on the number 3 again. The students worked on tracing the number 3 because practice makes perfect :) Then the students also did a number search where they colored only the 3s. This week we are going to take a break from writing our numbers and work on counting.
During Happily Ever After we continued our first story of the year: Little Red Riding Hood. During Social Studies we turned our focus to the importance of jobs, what our parents do and what we want to be when we grow up.
The gym floor is almost usable. The center logo was being painted today, September 25th, and will need a couple days to dry but should be available for us to use by next week. Keep in mind if your child does not have proper gym shoes they will have to sit and watch their friends play at recess.
We sing in church, at Jordan, on Sunday, September 30th at the 9am service.
Finally, our first field trip of the year will be to Green Meadows on October 24th. Look for details to come home in folders early in October.
