Joy, Peace, and Patience

Joy- We have fun together!

We learned how to have joy even when things don't go our way. When we are joyful, we can be kind of 'fruity' so we decorated our Joy picture with Fruit Loops. Of course we got to eat some too. We used our fine motor skills to place the Fruit Loops in each letter.

Peace-We sit and work quietly without loud voices or screaming.

We also learned that peace means we don't worry about things around us and that God promises to take care of us. He promises us that since He takes care of the birds and flowers, he will always take care of us.
We made bird puppets that could hold our lemon and used our fingers to pass the lemon back and forth to each other.

Patience- We wait our turn, raise our hand to speak, and don’t whine.

Patience is a hard one for little ones but I think it is a lesson we all can learn. We talked about taking turns and askign politley for things instead of grabbing toys or crayons from our friends hands. Every day we practice patience as we line up to use the bathroom. The boys have a longer line than the girls but they do a great job being patient.

We made sparkly patient pineapples. This was one of our prettiest crafts.

Mrs. Jennifer got us a real pineapple. We talked about how we have to wait patiently to eat the good part of a pineapple. Lonne found out that it is hard to bite into a pineapple. It's spiky!

We decided that it was much better to wait patiently for Mrs. Jennifer to cut the pineapple. It's much more tasty that way. :)
