This week our Jesus Story is "Jesus is our Rock". We learned that we need to build our life on Jesus, the firm foundation. Then when troubles come, He will not break or fail us. "The LORD is my rock" is our memory treasure.
Our weeks are getting busier even though the end is near. We are wrapping up a lot of projects and pages and activities.
Our science this week is planting beans and learning to take care of them. Hopefully you'll have some fresh beans coming home to enjoy this summer. We are also eagerly waiting and hoping our ducklings hatch this week.
In Social studies we are talking about community helpers, like the farmers who plant our food.
Kickball is still a hit for movement. We're learning how to field on the bases and passing to each other to get someone out.
For art we are making our graduation hats. Kindergarten students will get to come forward for their diploma during graduation. Preschool will be able to pick up their binders and take pictures and wear their grad caps too.
Preschool: Our review numbers are 7 and 17. We have finished our review letter book! Boy, are they fancy!
Kindergarten: In Reading, Golly finally came home from the Vv Vet. He is ready to play again. We will be using our imaginations with a new supernoodle and Wig Wogs for Ww. In Math we will be finishing up addition and reviewing the year. Are we really ready to pull out the coins again?

In 1st grade math we used mental math to add and subtract tens and added 2-digit numbers to find sums. In reading we read tricker words with the ar, or, and ear pattern, used sequence words such as first, next, then, and last to sequence events, and read the story “The Runaway Dragon.” The next spelling test is Friday, May 20.
In 2nd math we modeled and described division, used repeated subtraction to divide, and reviewed 3-digit addition with regrouping. In reading we read pattern words that have the spelling pattern spelled air, ear, are, erry, and ary, used because to connect parts of a sentence that tell cause and effect, identified meanings and correct spellings of homonyms, and identified base words and endings.
In 3rd grade math we divided by 2 and 3-digit numbers with and without remainders. We read the short story “A Symphony of Whales” by Steve Schuch.
In religion we learned that God blessed Elijah by bringing him to his heavenly home. God will bless us by bringing us home to heaven at the time he knows is right. Our other lesson that we learned was God gave a woman a son, and when he died, brought him back to life. God has given us life here on earth, and he will give us eternal life in heaven for Jesus’ sake.
