Dear Parents,

We are also going to begin learning about the world of Dick and Jane. For math we will be working on both recognizing and writing numbers along with grouping objects and the beginning stages of adding. Science : Learning about classifying animals. Bible : Studying the book of Mark. Rest Time : Aesop's Fables. Music : Piano lessons and learning about different instruments. We also work on stretching, bible verses, and working together and independently. Art : Lots! Spelling : words with short vowel sounds.
The Crafty Falcons (2nd Grade)

  • For science, the Falcons will continue with animal classifications and beginning to create a "lap book" of vertebrates and invertebrates.

  • In music they will be learning about stringed instruments along with piano lessons.
  • PE/Health will promote stretching.
  • Art, for one project, will be using a fork and paint to create a sunflower.
  • Spelling (I don’t have the words available to me as I create this, so I’ll need to wait one more week to get the weekly list to you.  Thank you for your patience.)  Mrs. Schlotte & Anna

Back to School!?!?!? - Well not quite yet but getting closer!

Hi and hope everyone is having a very blessed summer. Although I'm not 100% ready to roll into the new school year yet, the anticipation of fall is starting to build. It's always exciting to see what Jesus will unfold through our time together. I pray that we are all able to grow in faith and love and that He will guide our time together.

A little bit of business.

First off we are looking to set up a work day either August 18 or 25. Can you please text or email me (or comment below) which day may work better. We can use all the help we can get. Projects include : tinning back side of roof, new back door, replacing front sidewalk with pavers, and painting outside. Also, could you tell me which project you might be interested in helping with. There will be some overlap -- but it would be good to have an idea so people can bring tools as needed.

I have posted this year's school calendar to the Upcoming Events. Please take note. Also our daily schedule has changed some so plea…

Thank you to everyone for a great day and wonderful year. I continue to feel very blessed to work with and grow in faith with the children and families of BCS. The community of people God has put together is so beautiful.  Thank-you God for blessing us!

Psalm 28:7 The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

I'm going to launch right into the bible reading for the summer. I think everyday should start and end with Jesus -- and if you fill up the middle with Him too, it's a magical recipe... and only one ingredient necessary! :) Jesus. 

If you don't read this post right away and feel like you are behind - don't worry! and most of all don't give up! Just join the reading for the day.  We read the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible at home and at school. But you are welcome to read any version you prefer. The best translation is the one you read! :) Here is a lin…
