Birthday Party Fun!

My birthday is on New Years Day.  One perk is that I always have the day off.  But it also is hard to find time to celebrate it with family and friends.  So when the fourth grade surprised me with a party on December 8, I was VERY surprised and delighted to celebrate before Christmas.  Thanks to all who helped with the food, presents, and the fun time!  Its a birthday celebration I won't forget!

Reading with our buddies

While we enjoy helping our three year old buddies learn to worship in chapel,

we also LOVE visiting them in their classroom.  After practicing our oral reading skills with each other, we read two picture books to our buddies.  Sue Brandt

Chapel for the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

How do you celebrate the Reformation you may ask?  By giving chapel on the day of the 500th anniversary!  On October 31, 2017 the fourth grade did a great job of conveying the theme:  "Its still ALL about Jesus!"  through a skit, Bible readings, songs, and the repeated message: Its STILL all about Jesus!  They showed throughout the chapel time that Martin Luther was able to teach that it is Grace Alone, Scripture Alone, and Faith Alone in 5017 and today and every day.

Traveling Martin Luther

As we learned about the courageous Martin Luther from Germany we had the fun opportunity to take a flat, traveling Luther home for a night.  Pictures show him participating in activities at school and in a home that follows and loves Jesus.  This is what he tried so hard to teach the families he knew in Germany.

Habitat for Humanity Field Trip

Field trips are always a welcome change from classroom learning.  Thanks to our drivers we were able to learn about our September Chapel offering emphasis at the ReStore Store for Habitat for Humanity.  We helped make bird house decorations for families who are receiving a home.

Fourth Grade 2016-2017

The first quarter is over and FINALLY, I am able to post on the 4th grade blog.  It was a great start to the school year this past two months.  The students get along well, are eager to try new things, and have a heart for sharing Jesus!  What a blessing.  Mrs. Sue Brandt

Fourth grade gets to be an older "buddy" for a three year old preschooler while at our weekly chapel this year.  They are doing an awesome job!  All are good at helping them sit and stand, do motions for our praise songs, and dancing the offering envelope up to the offering plate in the front.  The three year olds seemed happy to have made an "older" friend too.  Below are some pics from our chapel time together and while in the preschool room.
