Guess Who Galore

Free Play time

The tongue depressors and cotton balls turned into a fire roasting marshmallows

Large Motor Time in the Commons

In our small groups we made a tree for Zaccheaus. We had to cut out the tree top and glue on Zaccheaus.

We used water colors to paint the tree trunk

We also played Guess Who again. We really liked the Disney Junior version and had fun playing the game.

In the gym we got to play a fun game called PacMan with Mrs. Mudd's class. There were 4 people who were taggers and if we were tagged we had to sit down, the trick was that we could only walk on the lines!

Gymnastics class today!

Free play time

Because of the snow Mrs. Douglas led our chapel in the Commons. She even played guitar for us before we started. She shared a message with us about being scared and remember that God is always with us.

Mrs. Schilling and Mrs. Helmkamp were busy with our small groups today so we didn't get many pictures.

One small group worked with Mrs. Helmkamp on counting and making patterns.

Another group got to use watercolors to paint Zaccheaus.

Our last group played Guess Who. It was fun to play a new game and we are very excited to play our own auction version.

Today was our day to have gymnastics class!

The parachute was a lot of fun.

Guess Who Game

We had an extra long free play time today because some of our friends got to go to a gymnastics class in the Commons this morning. Eight students got to practice rolling, crab walking, bear walking, and fun stretching to music.

We didn't get many pictures of small groups because both Mrs. Helmkamp and Mrs. Schilling were very busy helping their groups.

One group painted a picture of Zaccheaus to go with our Bible story.

Other students used our legos to try to make the creations in the pictures. It was harder than the last time because we had to find pieces mixed in with all of the other legos.

Mrs. Helmkamp worked with students on counting and patterning.

Mrs. Schilling showed everyone how to play Guess Who. We worked in teams to make it a little easier.

We had fun in the warmer weather outside before getting ready for lunch.

At Jesus time our friend Zippy thought  binoculars would help him see better at a parade. We had to problem solve to come up with a better solution. Even though binoculars help you see better, they don't help you see if someone is in front of you. We discovered that this was Zaccheaus' problem when he wanted to see Jesus.
