Bible

Bible story: Abraham and Isaac

Character trait: Love is putting others first. God wants us to obey our parents and teachers out of love.

Memory verse: Psalm 139:1-6

Psalm 139:1-18 "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 for 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; the night will shine like the day for darkness is as light to You. For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful. I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God. How vast is the sum of them. Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with You."


Social Studies

We will learn science this week

Science

We will learn about the rest of the 5 senses through various fun activities this week. We will do a variety of activities that use all 5 senses to inquire and learn more about the senses God gave us to give Him glory and explore the world He created around us.

Phonics, Handwriting, and Reading

Phonics:

This week we will review the vowels and their short sounds, and also learn consonant/vowel blends. We will listen to songs, read short stories, and make a class collaborated list on the board. Monday- No School, Tuesday- Yy, Wednesday- Zz, Thursday- review , and Friday- review.

We use ABeka Phonics curriculum. In the first 9 weeks, we will review letter sounds, focus on short vowels and begin learning beginning blends, which is the first consonant and short vowel of a word.

Reading:

We will practice Phonics and decoding skills one-on-one and in small groups. We will utilize our skills-based groups to meet individual needs.

We urge you to read to your child every day for at least 10 minutes. This increases their vocabulary, spelling, and conversational skills, but most importantly encourages a love of reading.

Handwriting:

We teach D'Nealian handwriting. We use handwriting sheets for the letter we learn each day, and soon will also practice writing in our journals. In our journals, we will practice talking through ideas and practice answering a question of the day.

We hope to be able to have in-person guest readers on Friday mornings very soon, but until then, we'd love to still have our guest readers be able to share the books they love in recordings. Let us know if you'd like to share a video for you reading a book for the class.
