Scripture Passage during opening assembly


(1)And God spake all these words, saying,

(2) I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage

(3) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

(4) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

(5)Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and forth generation of them that hate me;

(6)And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

(7) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

(8)Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy

(9)Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:

(10)But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

(11)For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.


Week 9 science project: Nature Hike: Animals. We will take a walk around the church grounds and identify the animals we see. The kids will sketch the animals into a "journal" that will be provided and we'll talk about our findings. If you want to look ahead at what we will be doing and discussing on our nature walk it's on pg. 140 of your Foundations guide. I actually encourage you and your child to take your own nature walk (just your own yard is fine) this week/weekend when it's not raining and record your findings based on the directions on pg. 140 in your guide. Then each child can share what they found. Being in different areas I'm sure we will all have different findings that will be interesting to hear about on Monday. Again, I'm praying for no

Week 8 Fine Arts: Continue learning the Tin Whistle instrument (how to hold it, the different parts, Left/Right hand, practice blowing). Go over the new Musical Grammar/Vocabulary and review the last 2 weeks vocab. I'll try to be more careful and aware of our time this Monday to insure we get everything in!
