[Religion March 12-15]
During this season of Lent, we are learning all about Jesus. I would like the the students to not only learn about what He did (His Miracles and His time preaching the Gospel while on Earth) but also learn about who He is! We begin by reading from the book of Matthew and watched two videos: the baptism of Jesus and Jesus calling on his Apostles. We learned that when a person give baptized, water is put on their heads three times. This subtilized the Holy Trinity (The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit). We also studied St. Patrick and how he brought Christianity to Ireland. St. Patrick used a cover to illustrate the Holy Trinity. We had a fabulous St. Patrick's day party with many unique green items and treats!
[Religion March 26-28]
This week focused on the events leading up to Easter: Palm Sunday, The Last Supper and Good Friday. We watch the video of the Last Supper. We also discussed the sacrament of Eucharist, specifically the bread and wine (the body and blood).We watch the video of the Last Supper and we are preparing for Easter, the crucification and resurrection. We also made Easter crafts.
