March 16- 20

The week of week – March 16- 20
This week the children were introduced to the letter S. Learning the “S” sound as in the words Sammy, sound sight, soft, soap, sand, sip, sock, soup and then the “SH” sound such as shoe, shock, shiver, shirt, shamrock, shiny, ship, sheer, shelf, sheep and shape.
The learned the ASL sign for the letter S.
They made Shamrocks using their hand-shape.
Our Scripture verse Psalm 31:24 “Be strong and take hear, all you who hope in the Lord.” We talked about how God wants us to be strong on the outside and on the inside. (outside) We talked about exercise, going for a walk, playing… (inside) We can read our Bible, talk to others about God, pray to God, and study his word.
Our Science project was putting green food coloring in water and placing white carnations in the vase to see if anything would happen.
On St. Patrick’s Day we ate green food and talked about St. Patrick. Our Scripture verse: Psalm 16:11 “Thou wilt show me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
Discussion: God will guide us in our life’s journey. This is a poem that we shared.
“May your life be filled with joy
And lots of hearty laughter,
May it overflow with happiness
Today and ever after.
We discussed spiders… How many legs they have what they like to eat, I asked them if they ever saw a spider – and you will be happy to know that your houses are all Spider free – According to the children they have NEVER seen a spider… Funny thing is the very next morning there was one in my bathroom sink! It was too early to show them – and quite frankly I wasn’t asking it to “hang around” –eeeewwwwww! I gave him a “ride” down the water spout! :-D
Our Scripture for Wednesday: Colossians 3:13
“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against on another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” We talked about how God wants us to have faith in him. Bu trusting God it allows us to forgive others. We discussed the things that we might have to forgive someone else for, such as forgiving someone who took our toy away or hit us, or called us an unkind name.
Thursday closed due to my cousin Funeral – thank you all for your prayers and understanding.
Friday’s Christian message was – Psalm 148:3 “Praise him sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars.”
We talked about the importance of the sun. Why it is important and if it was shining today. What are some ways you can protect your skin, eyes, in the sun.
We make a smiley sun using ovals as the sun’s face.
Working on eye hand coordination… Gluing was the skill we worked on for this activity. Scissor skills for this activity were not appropriate at this time.
The children were introduced to some new recipes this week. Spinach soup (with white beans) and Sloppy Joe Mac (ground beef with Pinto beans) They liked them both.
Next week I will introduce the letter T.
Please have your child bring in something that begins with the letter T...
We will talk about the earth, rocks, Squirrels, Turtles, and the number 13.
