When the parents came in, they were asked if they'd like something to drink-orange juice. The students gave the parents a little quiz using the "Bible Mania-Veggies Tales" book. It was cute because some of the questions the parents didn't have an answer for! After that, the girls recited 2 of their long term memory work projects-the 12 Sons of Jacob & the books of the Old Testament. They then served their parents muffins & grapes. They then fixed their own plates, then went to 2 of the other classes to share some of the muffins then came back and sat with their parents while they looked through their "portfolio." This consisted of some of the work I held onto throughout the year along with a list of the stories we did all year. I also had many pictures I'd taken and I typed up the class prayer journal for each girl to have a copy. It was fun looking back at the things the girls had prayed for all year.
So closes yet another chapter in Gracie's life-her 1st grade Bible Class. *sigh* Life is moving too quickly. This week, Katie & I will be spending time in the classroom decorating for the new quarter. I love doing this! Gracie helped me choose some things a couple of weeks ago. We went with an "ocean theme" and I'm excited to put it all up and have a fresh look to the classroom. I have "lost" 1 student to promotion but am "gaining" 2 new ones as well. The 2 new ones are boys so now we should have 2 2nd grade girls & 2 1st grade boys. Should make for a whole new dynamic!
