Scoops Schedule and Updates
There are updates and reminders of Scoops procedures that each student and parent should be aware of. They can be found in full at the bottom of the attached Scoops working schedule. Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately (close toe shoes, hair pulled back in a ponytail, etc.) so they are able to work as well. If you have any questions, please reach out to Meredith on Brightwheel. Please be sure to check the schedule below.
THIS WEEK AT UNLESS U
In Bible Class, we learned about the woman Jesus met at the well and several of the miracles Jesus performed. We learned that Jesus is compassionate and forgiving and that He has authority over all creation. He showed the woman at the well forgiveness and kindness.
Our Monday Bible class continues our study about the Fruit of the Spirit.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, we learned about Jacob and Esau, who were the twin sons of Isaac and Rebekah. We learned that Jacob tricked Isaac into getting his brother’s birthright. We reviewed what we learned by putting together puzzles with facts about Jacob and Esau.
This week, we focused on maintaining a topic in conversation. We practiced this skill by asking questions and making comments. We used “bridge sentences” to help make these connections. Examples include “that reminds me of…and I also…” plus others that support the conversation flow.
In math class, we have spent the week developing our number sense and being able to numbers based on what’s around them or other context clues such as before, after, between, close, and far. Soon, we will begin applying all these skills to practical life applications such as money, budgets, time, etc.
This week in Science, we finished up our focus on the digestive system. We did a fun activity where students took on the “roles” of mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. One of our friends played the part of a granola bar that needed to move through the digestive tract, and we directed them through the process. We’ve learned that how our bodies turn food into energy is just another fantastic example of God’s miraculous design in our bodies!
We reviewed Alabama symbols with a bingo game and word searches. It’s been fun learning all about our wonderful state this year! I hope your student has shared some of what we’ve learned throughout the year! We played fun Kahoot games on Friday!
In Core Essentials class, we began focusing on Perseverance. We learned that we needed to keep practicing, not to give up and when someone says you can’t do something, prove them wrong! We played with mazes to practice our Perseverance!
This week in Electives:
In Spanish, we have been working on simple phrases.
In Gym, we have been playing basketball.
In Fitness, we have been working out and doing yoga.
Our Cooking Class made no-bake three ingredient cookies using chocolate chips, peanut butter, and oatmeal. The students did a great job following step-by-step directions to make this tasty treat!
In Cooking Class on Wednesday, we made a 3-2-1 cake. We added three tablespoons of cake mix and two tablespoons of water and microwaved it for one minute (3-2-1)! We also added chocolate chips and whipped cream! Easy peasy - fun and delicious!
In Post Place this week, we finished learning about creation and how each one of us are “fearfully and wonderfully made” by God. We began learning about Abraham in the book of Genesis, talking about how God keeps His promises. We have been focusing on identifying different household items and the functions of each. The students also continued to work on their independent academic, life, social, and motor skill goals together!
