5th Grade Weekly Letter
November 11 – 15, 2019
Memory Verse Luke 2:1-16 (We will be memorizing this as an entire class in the KJV. We will work on it from now until Christmas Break. Although it seems impossible to them right now, by the time break comes, they will be saying it beautiful. Also, I will give extra credit to any student that says this either to their family, or at their church, whatever/wherever they chose, during the Christmas Break. It is so beautiful and quite remarkable to listen to them as they quote the Christmas Story!)
Bible: Beginning Jotham’s Journey as we start looking at the Christmas story.

Coming up the week of November 18-22 ~
*** It is my desire to make our week together very special and therefore, I am asking for your help! Since we no longer do a ‘Feast’ in 5th Grade, I ‘m planning to have a ‘Thankful Focus Time’ each morning and would like to have a special snack and drink for the kids. If you would be willing to provide a breakfast snack (your choice; nothing too entailed, but rather something like muffins, donuts, or a fruit, etc.) with either milk or juice, would you please message me back with what day and what you will be sending? I will send out an additional e-mail stating who, what, and what day that people sign up for. I think this will make their week extra special!
**Also, I would like for you to send in a handwritten note to your child, in a sealed envelope, telling them what it is about them that you are thankful for. They will open and read these one morning, as part of their Morning Starter!
**Kindergarten has invited us to share a special time with them on Thursday afternoon. I am not sure just yet what all they are planning, but they may ask us to bring an item or two. I will let you know when I know more.
