This week our Jesus story was “Mary’s Big News”. Mary found out from the angel Gabriel that she was going to have Jesus – the long-awaited Savior. We can be excited as we celebrate the Christmas season and rejoice in baby Jesus. “You are to call him Jesus” is our memory treasure this week.
For Movement we are working on hopscotch and dribbling basketballs.
In Science we learned how force can change speed and direction.
Social Studies this week will have us looking at the symbols of our country: the flag and eagle.
In Art we decorated Christmas cards that we are hoping to get delivered to local nursing homes.
Preschool: Our letter this week is Ss for Savior, sun, and slide. Our number this week is 9. “Circle with a line makes a fine number 9”.
Kindergarten: We started a new superkid, Sal. We can’t wait to play lots of sports games with him.
In Math we finished numbers for a bit and we are beginning to look at shapes.

In 1st grade Math we found the unknown addend in an addition equation and solved addition and subtraction problems. In Reading we are identifying and distinguishing between short and long vowel sounds and read the story “The Foolish Giant”. New spelling words came home this week. The next spelling test is Tuesday, December 7th.
In Math we are decomposing the ones place value to add and subtract. In 2nd grade Reading we read words with the -ou and -ow spelling pattern, identified homonyms, and identified nouns, verbs, and adverbs.
In 3rd grade Math we identified number patterns and extended patterns, identified the unknown factor in a multiplication equation, used multiplication and division to solve problems, and solved two-step problems. In Reading we are reading “Ramona Quimby, Age 8” by Beverly Cleary.
In Religion we learned how Moses had to leave Egypt so that he wouldn’t be killed. God wants us to obey is commandments instead of doing things in our own sinful ways. We heard about how God chose Moses to lead his people and promised to help him do it. God has chosen us to share his Word and promises to help us do it too.
