This week our Jesus story is "The Passover Lamb". After much interest in just it's picture, we are learning about the Passover from the Israelites escape from Egypt. We are learning how Jesus is our Passover Lamb. The Israelites needed the blood of a lamb to be saved from death. We need the blood of our Lamb, Jesus, to be saved from eternal death. Our memory treasure this week is "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God." John 14:1.
Our Science this week continued with the senses and focused on the sense of smell. We learned why it's important for our nose to smell. No drinking sour milk for this class!
In Social Studies Miss Natalie took us to her hometown of Seattle, Washington. We flew there in our plane and even visited the space needle. A funny but true memorable fact...Did you know its job is to catch lightning to keep people safe.

In 1st grade Math we used the strategy make a ten to add a two-digit number and a one-digit number and used mental math to find 10 more and 10 less. In Reading we recognized spelling patterns for contractions with pronouns.
In 2nd grade Math we added three-digit numbers with and without regrouping. In Reading class, we added ing and ed endings to verbs and recognized irregular past tense verbs.
In 3rd grade Math we identified fractions greater than one and wrote them as a mixed number and measured lengths to the nearest half and fourth of an inch using a ruler. In Reading we are reading the novel “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.
In Religion we heard a parable of a vineyard owner who showed love to his workers by giving them work to do and a day’s pay. God loves us and gives us something we don’t deserve and can’t earn, the free gift of salvation. We thank God for his free gift of salvation. In our other Bible lesson, we heard how Jesus told his enemies they should obey their government and God. God wants us to obey him and the government.
