What we’re learning
This first week we are getting acquainted with the procedures and routines ofour classroom. There are a lot of things to remember!
We are learning about God’s plan for salvation in our Old Testament bible stories. How
amazing our God is in giving us a Savior! Through books and activities we arerecognizing our letters and their sounds. In Math we are learning about the calendarand writing our numbers correctly.
Please help your child complete his/her assignments on the day shown below.Christ Light stories may be difficult for your child to read at this early part in the year. Simply guide your child by reading the story out loud and pointing to the words.Have your child help you with words he or she knows. If your child can read the storyby him/herself with only a few helps, great! Most important is comprehending thebible story and its beautiful truths.Wednesday: Share your first day of school drawing and tell what we did!
Thursday: Read Christ Light story “The Creation of the World”.
