“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-6
When we read the Bible, we learn the true meaning of love. Jesus loves us, even when we fall short.
In Religion, we listened to the many miracles that Jesus performed. One of them was when four men brought a paralyzed man to see Jesus. With the crowd of people surrounding Jesus, the men brought the paralyzed man to the top of the roof and lowered him down through the roof to see Jesus. Jesus saw their strong faith and said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:5) Then Jesus told the man to pick up his mat and go home. The crowd was astonished at what they had seen Jesus do. Jesus forgave the paralyzed man and then healed his body.
In Reading and Phonics, we have listened to nursery rhymes and the neat stories that they entail. The children listened to two different Humpty Dumpty stories. They compared and contrasted how they were alike and different. Then they finished with a Humpty Dumpty craft and each built a different wall for their Humpty Dumpty to sit on. Next, we listened to the Hickory Dickory Dock rhyme and made a mouse craft. With the rhyming, they have been listening for the same ending sounds of two words. The children enjoyed the rhyming games that we have played on the alphabet carpet and the rhyming board games too.
In Math, we continued practicing addition with picture addition and by using counters. The children have done a great job with the new concept and soon we will be starting subtraction. We count to one hundred and get our exercise at the same time. There are ten different exercises we do until we reach one hundred.
In Science, we have learned about the importance of honeybees. The honeybee can visit hundreds of flowers a day. The bee is able to sip the nectar through its tongue that looks like a straw. The nectar is stored in a stomach just for honey. Hives can be found in places that you least expect.
In Social Studies, we have joined the afternoon preschool class in our journey around the world. We stopped in the Arctic area and learned about where it is located and what types of animals live there. We learned that the Arctic consists of regions of Alaska, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, and Northern Canada, Russia, and Sweden. Some of the animals that live up in the Arctic are the walrus, polar bear, narwhal, and snow goose.
For Art, the kids had fun painting with shaving cream, paint, and marbles. They put all of the materials in a covered box and had fun moving the marbles around to make some beautiful pieces of artwork. They painted both big and small hearts.
For Choir, they did an amazing job singing during Lutheran’s Schools week at both the Sunday church service and the showcase for the church and school and the Boone community held in the parish hall. They have been learning new songs and have done a wonderful job singing them.
For Valentine’s Day, we celebrated with a party. They colored cute animal faces, a fun animal spinner, listened to a story, and had some delicious food. Thanks to all the parents for donating the crafts and food for the party. They shared Valentine's cards with each other and had a fun time. They made Valentine's cards for their parents too.
As we share the love for our friends and family, we are reminded by 1 Corinthians 13:13, “And now these three remain: Faith, Hope, and Love, but the greatest of these is LOVE.” Jesus LOVES us in everything that we do and his love will never end.
