Wow!  The kids did a great job on their musical.  The first and second graders took it to heart to be the best singers they could be and I think they nailed it!  I’m so pleased with their attitude and their hard work.  Lutheran Schools Week was a blast.  It was fun participating in the activities and dress up days.  Now we are back to regular work.

The Pizza Hut Book It goal for March is due at the end of the month.

Book orders will be sent in Wednesday, March 17th.

The children are singing for the kick off of Lutheran School’s Week.  They may come to 8:00 or 10:00 service.  Please sit with your family until it is time for the song! 

 

Great book projects this month.  I think we learned something new with these presentations.

 

Our musical is next week!  The children need to wear blue pants (solid color – no designs) and either a Zion shirt or a solid color shirt with no words and no pictures.  We need to wear this both on Thursday night and Friday for the 10:30 performance.

 

To dress like a “family” on Friday we are wearing blue pants and a Thrivent shirt any color.  If your child does not have a Thrivent shirt I will get them one on Monday.

Don’t forget to bring a favorite board game to play on Friday.

I bought a pencil pouch for the kids at the beginning of the year.  Some of them now have broken zippers and need to be replaced.  Please check with your child if they need a new one.  Be sure it is sturdy and big enough to fit 7 pencils, 2 white board markers, and an eraser.

The Pizza Hut Book It goal for January was sent home a while a go.  You have until next Friday to turn it in.

 

The January book project is on a Bible story.  The books were sent home last week.  Your child picked the book they were interested in.

 

Everyone has a reading goal to get for AR.  If your child reads two books a week, and gets 100% on the test, they will have their goal by the end of the quarter.

Wednesday is our turn to lead the Christmas worship service.  The children have been working hard on speaking their parts and using the microphone in church.  They are also doing great on singing their songs!  Their service is at 9:00 am and 7:00 pm on Wednesday.  They should wear dress-up clothes for BOTH services.  They may change after the morning service.  We will meet in our classroom no earlier than 6:50 Wednesday night.  Please have your child sit with you until that time.  I have choir practice and I will be busy until then.  Thank you.

 

The Pizza Hut Book It recording sheets for December were in mail boxes. Read six books this month and send the sheet in when it is filled out.

 

Nice job again on the book projects!  You could tell that the children learned a lot from the non-fiction books they read.  They did a great job sharing their projects.  No book project for the month of December!!!

 

MEMORY WORK FOR NEXT WEEK is the speaking parts for the Christmas service.  Please continue working on these at home.  They are doing a fantastic job.

We will have a substitute teacher on Thursday afternoon as I have to go to a teacher training class.  On Friday morning and Monday there will be a substitute teacher while I am in Wisconsin for my nephew’s wedding. Laughing

 

This year I tried something new.  In the past we have had a problem with losing pencils.  This year our new system has worked wonders!  Most of the children still have the seven pencils they started the year with!  They have been very responsible.  For the start of 2nd quarter seven new pencils would be awesome!

 

We continue to work on being honest, telling the truth, saying what is real.  I am sad to see how often kids this age will say anything and think nothing of it.  We continue to work on this.

 

The Arts and Crafts fair is JUST Around the corner!  I am excited to see what everyone comes up with.  

 

On Monday the children may bring a treat to share with the class (there are 16 students).  We won’t do costumes and NO TRICKS but treats would be great! 

 

The Pizza Hut Book It recording sheets are due Monday for the October free pizza.

 

Every Friday is popcorn day!  Your child can buy popcorn for $.50 a bag!

In Jesus Time we learned about The Exodus and how God took care of His people in the wilderness.  We found out sometimes we are whiners and complainers just like the Children of Israel. We also took a Jesus Time quiz on the lessons so far this year.  The kids did a great job.  It came home Friday with their papers.

In the note I gave you at Open House I said there would be math homework almost every day.  Well, that has changed.  For the first quarter I will not be sending home math homework.  We will see how this works.  There will be reading homework, memory work, and spelling practice, so there is still other work to be done at home!

Don’t forget the Arts and Crafts fair coming up in the next couple months.  At Open House you were given a list of ideas and guidelines to follow.  Don’t wait until the end to work on this.  The entire project is completed at home and complete by the student.
