This week our Jesus story is "Jesus washes his disciples’ feet". We learned that Jesus is our best example of treating others with Kindness and love. He shows us how to do it. We also learned that just as our bodies need washing from dirt. Jesus washes our Hearts clean from sin. "As I have loved you, so you must love one another" John 13:34 is our memory treasure this week.
In Science we identified smells and if we thought we'd eat the food or not.
In social studies we are traveling to Big Ben in London.
In Art we are finger painting!
Our movement this week is adding the actions and props to our songs for parents.
Preschool: Our final letter of the week is Mm for monkey, M & M, Mom, moon, moose, and mouse. Our number review is 3, and 13, as well as 26.
Kindergarten: In Reading we met our final super kid Hot Rod; he's building and racing fast cars. We are also looking at more memory words and digraphs found at the beginning of words.

In 1st grade Math we used place value to add and subtract two-digit numbers from two-digit numbers. In Reading we recognized words with long-vowel trickers and used synonyms in sentences.
In 2nd grade Math we subtracted three-digit numbers with and without regrouping. In Reading class, we learned irregular plurals and encoded words with open-syllable vowel patterns.
In 3rd grade Math we partitioned shapes into equal areas and used unit fractions to describe area. In Reading we are reading the novel “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.
In Religion we heard how Jesus was pleased because a widow loved God and wanted to give him the best offering she could. God loves us and blesses us with all that we have. We thank God for his love by giving him the best offering we have. Jesus told a parable to warn his enemies that those who rejected him as their Savior would suffer the punishment of hell. God wants us to hear his Word often and never reject its saving message.
