It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We are super busy in 1A!  Every day seems to get shorter, but not in a bad way.  There is just so much that we want to do and throw that in with what we have to do, and chapel practice and Christmas concert practice and life becomes a whirlwind of activity!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAToday we did our first spelling test, their tests were sent home.  Most kids need quite a bit of practice with these new words – they have blends and ending families that are a bit more complicated.  But I know they can do it! I am going to be making and sending home a blend and digraph chart that you can use to practice with your little ones.  I will also post it here in case you lose it :o)

We did our first round of Christmas centers today, and the kids were awesome.  We did Christmas tree math, stocking sentence practice, acorn painting and biographies, and Christmas patterns.  They will go through all four before the holidays, maybe more than once.

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAWe learned more about the Ten Commandments and talked about real life examples of how they can be broken, sometimes without even realizing it!  We also talked about  the need to repent – not to just be apologetic but also to move away from sin and make our lives better by changing from the inside out – starting with one good choice.  It is easy to apologize, but sometimes hard to change.

Good night all!
