Monday Monday….

 

Today seemed like it flew by! In a good way….

Bible was awesome; we talked about trusting God and used a bag of goldfish crackers and a bag of sand to talk about how much God knows that we don’t – like how many grains of sand are on a beach. This related to the statement God made to Abraham after he went to sacrifice Isaac.

Genesis 32:12 “But you have said, ‘I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.’”

Psalm 139: 17-18 “How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.”

Then a volunteer student and I illustrated a trust fall, and how a trust fall is just like trusting God.  We need to understand that He will always catch us, and often he asks us to do things that scare us – but he knows what we need more than we do so we must trust in Him!

We worshipped to Our God is an Awesome God and prayed for each other and our families.

Today we also took time to write bucket fillers to our classmates, finish up some old work in math and science, have library and practice our October verse.

Last class of the day we had some Grade 4 visitors, and they helped the grade 1's with their spelling and then we played Where the Wind blows.  It was a blast.

Note:  Book order was sent early last week so they should be in relatively soon. :o)

Blessings always,
