What a busy day today! We really enjoyed our time at Foot Frolic Frenzy. A big thank you to Shine Window Cleaning and Holiday Lighting and Celebration! Cinemas for sponsoring our class. You can continue to send in prize coupons and pledge money until November 5.
We also met with prayer circles for the first time. We learned the praise dance and spent a few minutes together in prayer. Prayer Circles are such a powerful way that we come together as a school community to support each other in prayer – another blessing of our amazing Christian School community.
We are beginning to learn about pumpkins, how they grow and the names of their parts. If you are interested in helping us explore pumpkins on the morning of Friday, October 31 from about 9-10am please let me know. We need 4 parent volunteers who will help us measure, weigh and count pumpkin seeds.
Due to the short week, there will not be a new update next week. Again, please note the dismissal times for our upcoming half days.

This week our sight word was “veo”. We also worked on syllables: “sa, se, si, so, su.” In writing we began using our sight words and syllables to write our very own easy readers. We are writing things like “La manzana, Veo el vástago, Veo la cáscara, Veo la pulpa, Veo la manzana.” (The Apple, I see the stem, I see the skin, I see the meat, I see the apple.”)
In Math we continued working with 5 groups and telling math stories. We are also using our math manipulatives to show addition problems with 5 groups like “5+4 is 9 and 5+2 is 7.”
In Science we continued to talk about otoño and took a walk around the school to investigate the fall changes that we see happening.
In Bible we finished our study of Joseph’s life by hearing about how he reunited with his family. We also began memory work this week on Psalm 100. We will learn one verse each week so that by Thanksgiving Break we will be able to share it at home. If you would like to follow along at home you can print out this booklet: Salmo100. We have learned verse 1.
