What a beautiful week we have had together. We have enjoyed the sunshine and been happy each day that we can add another sun to our weather graph during calendar. I hope you are enjoying the outdoors together as a family as we begin to see some signs of fall and can marvel at God’s wonderful creation.
…we enjoyed a visit from the Grand Rapids Symphony Brass Quintet this week. We learned a lot about brass instruments, including how to make one from household items!
…we talked about our Grandfriends and their upcoming visit. Remember that if a grandparent is unavailable you are welcome to invite an aunt, uncle, cousin, parent or other special friend. Please let me know if your child will not have their own special visitor so that I can help them connect with a different friend during that time. We are excited to share a special song we have been working on along with the rest of the kindergarteners. Have you heard it at home? If not, ask about “1, 2, 3, Jesus Loves Me.” The children love singing it!
…we prayed for sick brothers and sisters, that our parents “have a good day at work” and that “Jesus is with my Grandma in heaven.”
A few important dates coming up:
~Friday, October 4 – Grandfriends’ Day (Visiting starts at 9am, Program at 10:45)
-Wednesday, October 16 – Trip to Calvin Nature Preserve (leaving at 8:45)
~Friday, October 18 – Foot Frolic Frenzy (We will do laps at 9:15am)
In Math we continue to work on number identification, formation and understanding what numbers represent. This week we learned a new card game that we can play in groups. It is much like what you may remember as “War.” It is a great game to play with your child at home. Remember to name the numbers in Spanish!
This week in Bible we heard more about Abraham and his family. We could see God’s promise to Abraham beginning to be fulfilled in the story of Isaac and Rebekah and the birth of their sons.
We have been talking a lot about apples! We have been writing about our trip to Robinette’s and learning more about the life cycle of an apple. Check out the special apple your child brought home today and ask them to tell you about it’s life.
