Nathan's mat man

Here is Nathan and his mat man!

What was your favorite part of making Mat Man at home? I liked adding the colorful balls to decorate him.

If you could give your Mat Man a name, what would it be? Nathan!

Baby Moses

This week in Jesus time we are learning about Baby Moses. We learned that God protected Baby Moses and kept him safe even though the bad King Pharaoh wanted to kill all the baby boys. Moses and his mother got to go live in the palace with the princess.
The girls had a picnic this morning!
 Before going to recess we practiced making letters H, F, and L We discovered that letters 'H' and 'F' have very quite sounds and to make the sounds for the letters 'F' and 'L' we need our teeth.
Using the wood pieces to make the letters 

It was very foggy this morning. We decided to stay up on the big playgrounds since in just a few more weeks it will be gone during construction.

We enjoyed playing with the other classes on the playground.

During center time today we practiced our letters in the sand. It was fun to write them in the sand.
 We also matched each of the letters with the correct letter and pictures.

We drew pictures of our school building. Late we will make observational drawings.

Since we talked about Baby Moses floating in the river we decided to find things in our classroom that sink and float as well.

This is Zion VoiceThread Final

We were the first to the playground today. So we enjoyed being playing with just our class.

Scooping up rocks in the house

The signs have been a hit. We enjoy carrying them around and making them stand up in the rocks.

Kicking the ball with Mrs. Schilling

 Andrew Nelson, the Director of Family Life and Youth at Chapel of the Cross Lutheran Church, led our chapel.  We played "Andrew Says" (Simon Says) and learned how the disciples followed what Jesus said. We learned that we follow the words of important people like our parents, teachers, and pastors, and especially the words of Jesus!

 We learned a new song about where to start writing our letters and worked on starting at the top of the line and drawing to the bottom.

 We painted Joseph's coat of many colors

We completed a VoiceThread to show what we learned about Zion last week.

What was your favorite part of making Mat Man at home? Making the hands. Making it with Mommy
If you could give mat Man a name, what would it be? Alice (because he's a girl) or maybe it's mat Man's wife

This is Zion VoiceThread

Animal Parade

The girls started their morning in the writing center

This morning we continued our story about Joseph. I drew the story as the students helped me to recall details. We talked about how Joseph and his mom and dad were happy but how Joseph's brothers were sad and jealous of him.

We learned another new song today that is from our Handwriting without Tears CD, Where Do You Start Your Letters?... at the top
 We practiced starting at the top line and drawing a big line to the bottom line.

 We painted Joseph's coat of many colors as well.

We also worked on a VoiceThread to share and what we learned about Zion last week. We will continue to add to our VoiceThread tomorrow to complete it.

By the end of center time today all of the students were playing together in the block center.
