******Smart Watches*******

The handbook reads ... "Electronic Watches (PK-5) are not appropriate for students to wear during the school day."

Examples of electronic watches are Apple watches, Android watches or watches on which you can play games, send or receive communications and watches where students may store data that would allow them to cheat. Also, any device or item that tends to distract students from instruction is considered inappropriate and may be taken up by the teacher. Lower level Fitbit watches which count steps and tell time should be appropriate as long as the student is not playing with them.

Bible

Bible story: Elisha the prophet

Biblical character trait: We should have a good attitude when things do not go our way and that kindness means doing good to others.

Memory verse: Psalm 139:1-12a "O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O Lord! You hem me in behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful to me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me; Your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me, even the darkness will not be dark to You."

Social Studies

We will learn about Science this week.

Science

We will learn how the particles are different in solids, liquids, and gases. We will also learn how heat changes matter.

Phonics and Handwriting

We will review the alphabet and color songs.

We'll practice the short vowel sounds and writing each of the vowels. We are adding each consonant to the vowel sounds to form our vowel blends. (ba, be, bi, bo, bu)
