What we’re learning
Our Bible stories for this week are “Joseph is Sold by His Brothers” and “Joseph in Potiphar’s House and Prison”. We’ll see that God had a difficult plan for Joseph, but he remained faithful through it all. Our basal stories are “What Did You See?” and “I Went Walking”. We are focusing on short “i” words, the word family –id, and predicting outcomes. In math we are working with pattern blocks, double facts, and balances. In writing workshop we are writing personal narratives. We are finishing up our unit on plants in science.

Reminder: Please bring Basal Reading books and math flash cards back to school the next day. Thanks! Monday: Read Christ Light ”Joseph is Sold by His Brothers” Read “What Did You See?” Tuesday: Memory Work (Matthew 26:41) “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.” Practice Math Facts Wednesday: Read Christ Light “Joseph in Potiphar’s House and Prison Read “I Went Walking” Thursday: Memory Work (6th Commandment) Spelling Test (did, hid, kid, lid, rid, slid, bid, mid) Bonus: grid, riddle)

Jesus Give Away
“The LORD watches over you—the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121: 5-8 Our lives may seem like a mystery to us, but they aren’t to our God. He promises to keep us from harm, watch over us, and one day bring us to His home in heaven. Our God keeps his promises! With you under His care, Miss Luehring
