So much has happened (and is still happening) in the Goodness Fruit Stand! With all of our recent lessons, events, and experiences, we hardly know where to begin! We have collaborated on performances to share God’s Word, communicated our ideas in the planning of events, used our new knowledge of content to make decisions that involved critical thinking, and designed some fun, aerodynamic paper airplanes to test the “Beginning of March Winds”!
In our Bible studies, we have been focusing on the childhood of Jesus. We are reading and studying a book titled, Growing Up Where Jesus Lived. As we memorize and discuss the meanings of Bible verses, such as Luke 2:52-” And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”, as well as Philippians 2:8- “And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death on the cross.”, we learned that Jesus was entirely good. He was fully God and fully man. We learned that, just like us, Jesus developed physically, intellectually, spiritually, and socially.
Our intermediate teachers collaborated to create a “Video Game Day” for us. They dressed up like video characters from the movie, “Wreck-It Ralph”. We rotated to different rooms to design, create, and build cars out of scrap materials, design, create, and build ramps to race the cars we built, try to defeat Wreck-It Ralph in the homophone smart board game, try to keep the ” Life- Size Jenga Tower” from falling, and watch amazing explosions with Ralph outside. During P.E. time, be used teamwork to build towers as the “Wreck-it Crews” tried to break them down. This was an awesome job for our teams. We really enjoyed this surprise day!
