Symmetry and Creativity

We dropped paint on one side of a piece of paper.  Then we refolded the paper and rubbed it to make a symmetrical design.  We reopened the paper and after it dried, we added details.  What imaginations!

Donuts with Dad

It’s always fun to have the dads visit our classroom.  The children were so excited about the gifts they made their dads and the opportunity to show them around.

 

Fathers
A son’s first hero,
A daughter’s first love

More Polygons

We read The Greedy Triangle by Marilyn Burns to learn more about polygons. As I read the story, the children used Popsicle sticks to form each shape. Listening to this story together is a good review of the basic polygons. The theme of the story is being content with the gifts with which God has blessed each of us.

Mission Project

This is a video of volunteers from Atlanta working at the orphanages in Nicaragua.  Our class will pray for the volunteers visiting this February and collect contributions to help them rebuild the children’s dilapidated dorm.

“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:17-18

We Have Dreams Too!

We read about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King.  Then we used his “I Have a Dream Speech” as a model for our writing.  We thought about ways that the world could be a better place for our children, just as Dr. King dreamed about a better place for his children.
