Kindness is one of the fruits of the spirit mentioned in Galatians 5:22. Kindness is a powerful pathway to personal growth. When we practice kindness, attention turns away from us and onto others. One simple act of unexpected kindness can totally change a persons day!
Kindness is an essential learned social skill in today’s complex society. For children, learning to be kind fosters empathy for others when the focus shifts from them to someone else. Children learn by example. The most influential resource in children’s lives are their parents. Make a deliberate point to demonstrate random acts of kindness when you are with your children, perhaps something as simple as paying for someone's coffee or help someone carry their groceries. Let your child witness many different ways of being kind to others- Help your children experience the joy of kindness.
For it is in giving that we receive — Saint Francis of Assisi
Something to think about... A Blessing Bag- another way to demonstrate kindness!
When was the last time you thoroughly cleaned your child’s water bottle? Mold grows easily on plastic drinking bottles when they haven't been properly cleaned and sanitized. RBS teachers have noticed that some of the bottles coming to school with kids do have mold on them. If you are not sure how to properly clean and remove the mold, Google provides many answers.
Here is one I found– excuse the ads. https://www.health.com/fitness/how-to-clean-water-bottle
Our Christmas video will be in soon. Be on the look out in your child's folder!
Chapel Chat -Ms. Chris
Last month we heard Bible stories about obeying . Noah obeyed God and built an Ark and God promised not to flood the earth again with a rainbow. Children made their own arks and colored them in art class. In February we will be hearing Bible stories about being strong and courageous with God's help. Children will be reminded of God's love for them through David and Goliath and Daniel in the Lion's Den. We continue to use songs and activities to bring our bible stories to life! This month's Bible Memory Verse is Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous ".
Musical Moments -Ms.Deborah
Happy February!! Music this month is full of songs about Family, Friends, and Loving One Another.
The Toddlers, 2s, and 3s classes will continue to work on rhythm, tempo, and dynamics through the use of instruments, ribbon sticks, and movement.
The Pre-K classes are learning music note names and how to read them on the staff. We will continue our journey through all of the instruments. This month we will start the brass instruments, Trumpet and French Horn. Our music history portion will finish up the classical music genre in the modern period of Gershwin and Bernstein.
May music fill your hearts with love as we celebrate Valentines Day this month! Thank you for the opportunity to teach your precious children about music.
Amazing Artists at Butterfly School! -Ms. Jennifer
In art class we learned about a new artist Piet Mondrian and his use of primary colors and geometric elements. The Pier Mondrian snowman was one of the examples that the student exhibited his works. In February we will focus on a new artist Jim Dime and his use of heart in his artwork.
