Bible Truth: God used Samson to help Israel defeat their enemy the Philistines, even though Samson was not fully obedient to the Lord's plan for his life.
Happy January Birthdays to Dalton & Quinn Scheer and Evie-Rose Brooks! Birthday celebrations at the end of our day are truly a favorite for KA! Thank you parents for making your child's birthdays special. For you summer birthdays (I have a soft heart for you guys, as I am one) ...we will celebrate in May for all our summer birthday kiddos.
Kindergarten was on the edge of their seats this past week with our Bible character Samson. The good news is... your kids know, even though his long hair is his secret to his strength, GOD is the ultimate source of Samson's strength. KA also learned what God can do with a weakling like Gideon as well. Because of Gideon's obedient heart, the Lord used him and his very small army to help Israel defeat Midian without even fighting! Ask your child how they did it. I love our class' excitement for our Bible stories, and I pray their faith in our Mighty Lord is increasing this year as they listen to God's power and His love for His people, whom we are a part of !
As far as phonograms go….we are still gaining 2/week. We realize the phonogram ring is getting full. If you feel your child has mastered the alphabet sounds (1st 26) please put them in a baggy and send them into us with a note that says ‘Keep at School.’ Check my website under the phonograms sidebar to be sure your child has every phonogram we have learned thus far. If you are missing any, let me know and I will be sure to add them to your child’s phonogram ring for practice while riding in the car, or wherever your child practices. Consistent phonogram practice makes for a more confident reader.
Be sure to be preparing for this Wednesday (1/26), the 100th day of school! Please discuss with your child something they would like to bring '100' of. Everyone is to bring 100 of something. When my youngest kids were in Kindergarten in Colorado we lived near a farm out in the country. My son LOVED to find bones around the farm next door or just random bones from various 'circle of life' activities around our country living. All this to say...he was SO PROUD to show off his collection of 100 bones to his Kindergarten class. Many were horrified -especially his teacher! Some things never change, he still loves to hunt, do all kinds of outdoorsy activities, and still loves the shock factor affect.
Rejoice In All Things,
