This week I will not be having a typical blog post.
I apologize for not writing the blog sooner! As the school year comes to an end, there are many things to finish before our time is up! I am excited to share with a few pictures and items that we have been learning about the past few weeks.
In the past weeks, the students have covered a variety of topics in their class time! In bible, the students have talked about Zacchaeus, the man who says thank you, Jesus riding into Jerusalem and the last supper. It is amazing to see the students picking up on these stories. Since it is holy week, the students have been focusing on Jesus suffering and dying on the cross. An amazing story about Jesus death but also his resurrection. The students will hear the amazing Easter story next week as we talk about Jesus resurrection even more! What a blessing to share this news with them. I pray you all have time to focus on not only Jesus suffering and death - but his victory over the grave! He is risen. He is risen indeed. God bless your Easter celebration this weekend.
The students have been able to look at two artists in the past week: Claude Monet and Georgia O'Keefe. The students were able to recreate sunsets, flowers and other projects based on these two artists. In small group they have also focused more on the letters U, V, and W. The students were able to look at making patterns, work on their writing skills (first and last names!) and counting. It is amazing to see the progress that the students have had from just after Christmas! God is good. I am excited to share more information with you all at our parent/teacher conferences next week.
In the past weeks, the students had been preparing to sing in church this past Sunday. They did an amazing job singing Hosanna and Shine Jesus Shine. I am so thankful that so many of the children were able to join us during the church service to sing. They were so excited to sing these songs for all of you! Lately the students have been looking at sing along books such as: Peanut Butter and Jelly, 5 Little Monkeys, There's a hole in my bucket and 5 speckled frogs. They love learning actions and hearing a story while singing along!
As the weeks become busier and busier, I will do my best to post little bits of information on the students each week. If I am able, I will continue to write a blog post as well!

He is risen!
