Music is such a powerful way to communicate. Our choir was blessed with the opportunity to share God’s wonderful plan of salvation through Jesus Christ in a number of ways this past month. Both school choirs sang at the Festival of Hope on December 3rd. The entire school shared with family and friends the news of The Greatest Gift (Salvation in Jesus) at the School Christmas Worship Service on Friday, December 16th.
Our class spent a cold winter morning right before Christmas break Christmas caroling all around Boone to share the message of the true reason for Christmas. We were warmly greeted everywhere we went, and it was evident that the Gospel message touched the hearts of the people hearing our message.
The pure joy of Jesus coming out of our students' voices is a strong witness to how the Holy Spirit works in our students' hearts.
We found it fun exploring the use of action verbs as we acted them out for our classmates to guess. We also worked on learning the rules for the use of state-of-being verbs and helping verbs. A song on helping verbs was a fun way to reinforce what we had learned.
We are becoming more fluent in our reading and decoding skills as we continually master vowel sounds, consonant blends, digraphs, and vocabulary words.
A heartfelt thank you to our room parents: Kyla Neis, Stacey Huedepohl, and Taylor Larson, for planning our fun classroom Christmas party, which included decorating cookies, a game where we unwrapped trinkets in saran wrap, and a gift exchange with our classmates. We all enjoy giving and getting gifts.
We were excited to make Christmas gifts for our parents. We created clothespin snowflakes and whimsical wooden trees. However, our favorite and most challenging gift was our abstract canvas painting of the nativity.
May we celebrate all year long that “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Thanks be to God!
