What we’re learning
Our Bible stories for this week are “Jacob’s Dream” and “Jacob and Laban”. In math we are learning our double facts (1+1, 2+2, etc.), working with pattern blocks, and writing number sentences. Social studies includes studies on communities. We are exploring plants and their needs in science. Language arts includes the “et” word family, punctuation, and blends.

This week math flash cards will be sent home to practice. Your child will store them in his/her file box. Over the year, more and more will be added to their collection. Please practice flash cards at home and then send them back to school in the file box. We will be using them at school as well. Thank you!

Jesus Give Away
“As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.” (Psalm 125:2) May that very same LORD surround you with his faithful love, giving you peace in his powerful protection. Joy in Jesus, Miss Luehring
