Today is Monday; it’s music with Mr. G and it’s St. Patrick’s Day.
I completely forgot it was St. Patrick’s Day this morning but lucky for Isabel, I had unconsciously added green to what she was wearing! When she got home from school she said that SOME kids in her class were pinching. However, Teacher Mrs. A put a quick stop to that. I told Isabel that was AWESOME of her to do that because that’s NOT what St. Patrick’s day is about! We’ve gone over what the day is really about in the past and we talked about it again today. So I’m glad Isabel was “safe” because I know kids pinch when you don’t wear green!
For music class they are working hard on learning there songs for their spring program coming up in May. Isabel said she enjoys the song “Bullfrogs and Butterflies” by Barry McGuire. She sings little snippets of the song while she doing her homework or playing around the house.
This week’s Bible verse is…
“Greater love has no one than this; that one lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command.”
– John 15:13-14
Bible lesson this week, being a true friend as Jesus taught us to be.
S.a.T. (show and tell) this week is to share something about spring. Isabel said she couldn’t think of anything to share, so she didn’t do it. I was a bit disappointed that she didn’t share something, again.
This week in class they are learning the cursive “n“, “m” and “y“. Isabel says she is enjoying cursive writing but she doesn’t like “q“, “g“, or “p“. She’s also glad they are finally learning “y“.
This week’s spelling words are…
addresses: street, city and state where businesses or homes are found
clerk: a salesperson in a store
grown: in increase in size or age
honor: show of respect or love
route: a series of place visited regularly by a person
Language arts this week is verbs (present tense), subject-verb agreement and “Goodbye Curtis“.
This is a short week, with Friday being a no school day due to a teacher in-service day. All tests normally taken on Friday will be taken on Thursday. We started working on the spelling words over the weekend and will focus on the Bible verse the rest of the week.
Also this week the whole school is having a “Penny Drive” for Samaritan’s Purse. Samaritan’s Purse is an organization that does the “shoe-box” Christmas gifts during the holidays. So to support this awesome organization, she took pennies today and she’ll will take pennies tomorrow too.
Today we raided her piggy bank.
I was very surprised by the amount of pennies in there.
She took all the nickels and dimes and several dollars worth of quarters.
She was excited to share her change/pennies for the drive.
