What we’re learning
Our Bible stories for this week are “The Parable of the Rich Man and Poor Lazarus” and “The Rich Young Man.” We will be reading “Rose and Grandma Make the Sun Shine” and “Our Family Get-Together” in our basal reading books. In phonics we are focusing on long “a” and “o” sounds. Math will include “doubles plus one” flash cards (4+5, 3+4 etc.) We will begin learning about various land forms in social studies and focusing on the letter “d” in handwriting.
Monday: Read Christ Light A “The Parable of the Rich Man and Poor Lazarus” Read “Rose and Grandma Make the Sun Shine” Tuesday: Matthew 4:10 (Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.) Math Facts Wednesday: Read Christ Light B “The Rich Young Man” Read “Our Family Get-Together” Thursday: Hymn 587 Now, Rest Beneath Night’s Shadow v. 1 Spelling Test (blade, shade, made, bake, cake, date, late, skate, Bonus: plate, grade) Hymn 587: Now rest beneath night’s shadow, the woodland, field, and meadow;
The world in slumber lies. But you, my heart, awaken, With prayer and song be taken; let praise to your Creator rise.
Here are some ways to challenge your child: Math– Write word problems that include “doubles plus one” facts. Reading– Identify the sequence (what happened 1st, 2nd, 3rd) of the stories read at home. P.E.– Dribble and kick a soccer ball accurately and quickly.

It was great to see so many of you at our Science Fair this last Friday! What talented children you have! If you still have a report card envelope, please send that in this week signed. This Thursday is the 100th Day of School! Please have your child pick an item and bring in 100 of them (pennies, paper clips, etc) either on or before Jan. 31st. We will share our collections on Thursday! Let me know if you would like to come help in the classroom by listening to students read/do flash cards/say sight words! Looking at our weeks, Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30-3:00 seem best for us. Thanks! :)

“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” Isaiah 43:25 May we find peace in our forgiving God and pour out our thanks in our lives! In Him, Miss Luehring
