St. Paul Family Newsletter
Hello from Mrs. Darby! I hope you were all enjoying a safe and healthy Spring Break! Some of our friends traveled and others were here enjoying 65 degree days followed up by a forecast of 6-10” of snow coming soon. YIKES! Our families were doing lots of fun things this past week. Some were welcoming new pets into their families, some were meeting Mickey and Minnie for the first time, some were frolicking at a warm beaches…me, I was doing lots of small projects including rereading Charlotte’s Web. The first read was about 50 years ago. No need to do the quick math!!!...
This past month, Mrs. Ramiza helped us learn about letters Q, R, and S with an added week of Easter fun. We learned the sound each letter makes in addition to how to form both upper and lower cases of the printed letter. Our craft projects included quails, quilts, queens, quarantine, robots, roosters, rockets, raccoons, rainbows, snow, St. Patrick’s, snakes, Spring, Easter bunnies, Easter eggs, and Easter wreaths. What a fun month! We enjoyed our St. Patrick’s Day party and want to thank all of you for contributing to a FUN event. Then a couple weeks later, we changed from everything green to everything pastel!
I taught the Bible lessons for the month. Letter Q week allowed us to learn about the queen who saved baby Moses from the king who wanted to have all the baby boys removed from his kingdom. God protected Moses and Moses became a very important biblical figure. For letter R week, we heard the message of Noah and the Ark. Noah was a faithful man and followed God’s command. Even though he was ridiculed, he packed his family and 2 of every animal to board the ark. The earth was flooded and in the end of the story, the rainbow in the sky had a very special meaning. Ask your child what the rainbow meant. He will know!! The next two weeks were available to teach the Easter story. Part 1 of the story (the sad part) described Jesus being hated by those that he loved. He carried the heavy wooden cross and was crucified. Part 2 of the story (the happy part) described Jesus arising from the tomb, living on Earth for 40 days, then going to be in Heaven with God. Your children are very good at knowing this story. Ask them about the Easter events and what they know. They will amaze you!
