In 1st and 2nd grade we looked at Luke 2:41-52. We saw that Jesus was a real boy who grew up just like us. Although Jesus is true human, He is also true God, as we see in His response to Mary in the temple. Jesus wasn’t lost. He was in His Father’s house.
He willingly returned to Nazareth, and Luke writes that Jesus grew up physically and spiritually in the eyes of God and man. Jesus’ ultimate act of obedience took Him to the cross where He died to win us forgiveness for all sin.
We had fun taking a picture of a food item and using as many adjectives as we could think of to describe the size, taste, smell, color, and feel of it.
We have thoroughly enjoyed reading some fiction stories: Officer Buckle and Gloria” was a favorite. This was a very funny story which used humor to teach us about safety rules. We enjoy reading, especially when we get to partner with classmates.
We had fun creating penguins with salt dough and a light bulb. They seemed to take on a personality of their own.
To keep with the penguin theme, we used cool colors of water-color paints sprinkled with salt to make it look like snow and added penguin cut outs to give it a little dimension. Then we wrote stories to accompany our art. Come by our classroom to see our Arctic display of cute penguins and unique stories.
Working with partners to create mazes was both fun and challenging. We then got to try out each groups maze using a magnet to move a paper clip from start to finish. You are welcome to come by anytime and give them a try. It was fun to share our mazes with our parents and friends during Lutheran Schools Week at the open house.
The end of January our school along with about 1,800 other Lutheran schools celebrated National Lutheran School’s Week. That gave us an opportunity to proclaim the many blessings Trinity Lutheran School has to offer within the community we serve. We are truly blessed!
