Genesis 1:11-12 (NKJV)
Kids Against Hunger
Saturday, Dec. 12th, 10am
2400 South Minnesota Avenue
Sioux Falls, SD
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
"Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say "Do it again"; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately but never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we." - G.K Chesterton

Bless the Church reminder
Also, please remember that each CC community has a facility fee that is set by their host church. Faith Baptist would like that fee to be a free will donation. If you have not yet donated your facility fee, this is just a reminder to please do that before the end of the school year. Recommendation is $25.00 per student. I can not stress enough how absolutely incredible this church has been for us. They are very relaxed and accommodating to all of our needs. The facility is also large enough that we will be able to expand with Challenge classes over the next several years. We are also looking at the need for 2 or more campuses in and around Sioux Falls next year. When those campuses open, they will be searching for a host church. An excellent recommendation from Faith Baptist would be very helpful in the search. Please let them know how appreciative we are!

Be sure to ask and answer all the correct questions to determine the job of each word in the sentence. Go slowly over the questions and answers for predicate adjectives so students learn not to assume the word following the verb is a DO. DO are so common that most students never learn that there are other patterns. Questions are the same as last week, but the answers will be different.
1st, ask "is the word after the verb a DO? A PN? or a PA?
If you see a linking verb, automatically ask yourself to identify a PA or a PN
PN: Does it rename the subject?
PA: Does it describe the Subject?
PA always is an adjective, follows a linking verb and describes the subject of the sentence.
