Fall Fun

From the Teachers:
October 24-28
3’s/4’s Program
This week we talked about Fall and Harvest. We made our own jack-o-lanterns, made handprint candy corn, went on a nature walk and explored harvest foods. We used our bodies to move through a spider web made of tape in our classroom, as well as using our movement skills on the playground.  

We will play pumpkin twister on Friday.  We learned our new Autumn leaves song and carved our class pumpkin. We also said Goodbye to Ms. Keegan on Thursday.  She will be greatly missed, but we know she will do wonderful things in her career as a Special education teacher!  She has also promised to stop by and visit us.  

2’s Program
In the two's class students enjoyed dancing to Fall songs, singing nursery rhymes.  They made candy corn mosaics and sampled candy corn.  Students painted pumpkins with legos to create a pattern, they have been decorating the new felt tree with leaves, pumpkins and spider webs.  On Friday students will paint their own pumpkin and they will do a fine motor activity where they pull spiders from the spider web using tweezers.  They enjoyed reading several fall books, and singing lots of songs.  

Curriculum Calendar
Next week’s Theme: Hibernation.

Fall Harvest Reminds us of God’s Bounty!

They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord— the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more.

You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.

Praise God for the Harvest Song
1 Praise God for Harvest - time,
sing till bells of heaven chime!
sing of his love revealed,
fruit of earth and ocean's yield:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Good harvest safely stored
praise our great Creator Lord!
2 Plough turning soil and stone
by the winter stormwinds blown; green buds on bending bough, life to bring us harvest now: Alleluia! Alleluia!...
4 See in our food a sign
pointing to a love divine;
strength from a summer sky,
life bestowed as rainclouds fly:
Alleluia! Alleluia!...
5 Lord, on your gifts we feed:
show us each the other's need; give us the love to share
in our deeds and in our prayer: Alleluia! Alleluia!...

Bible Story History Lessons
Stories told from the My Bible Storybook by  Micahel Burghof
October 24 – 1 Samuel 16:11-12, 18; 17:34-35
David Helps His Family and Saul
David was a shepherd and he loved the Lord. He was the youngest in his family. One day King Saul who was distressed asked for someone who could play some music for him. Saul’s attendants asked David to play his lyre for Saul. David played soothing music for Saul and remained in his service. There was an enemy of Saul and the Israelites whose name was Goliath. Goliath was a very tall and large soldier. Saul needed someone to face him in battle.  David volunteered.  David told Goliath that he came against him in the name of the Lord. “Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and Goliath fell face down on the ground.  So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone.”
October 25 1 Samuel 17:12-20
David Visits His Brothers
Now David was the son of an Ephrathite named Jesse, who was from Bethlehem in Judah. Jesse had eight sons, and in Saul’s time he was very old. Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war: The firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; and the third, Shammah. 14 David was the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul, 15 but David went back and forth from Saul to tend his father’s sheep at Bethlehem. David took care of his family while he worked for Saul.
October 26 1 Samuel 18
David and Jonathan are Kind
King Saul’s son Jonathan became David’s friend. The Bible says, “Jonathan became one in sprit with David, and he loved him as himself.” Jonathan showed his love to David by spending time with him and making covenant with him through giving him his tunic, his sword, his bow and his belt. Jonathan’s friendship was a gift of God to David, especially since Saul would not let David return to his home.
October 27 1 Samuel 18-19
David and Saul
David was successful in whatever Saul asked him to do. Saul saw that the Lord was with David and he became jealous. Saul became increasingly angry with David and he began to hunt him down. The Lord continued to be with David because David trusted in the Lord and God’s protection kept David safe from Saul.
