About Mrs. Thomas

Teaching 4th grade is the best! The kids are eager, excited, and ready to learn. The year is filled with new things to experience and learn, memorable projects to be a part of, and trips to take to learn more about our great state. Of course, spending time with our friends can’t be forgotten! It is a blessing to be surrounded by such special kids!

Lights! Camera! Action!

Welcome to a new year! The Back to School Bash was a success last evening. The kids were excited to see each other and move in to their new classroom. New crayons, pencils, and other supplies filled the desks and cubbies. It was great to see the halls filled with students and parents again. It promises to be a great year!IMG_5574  IMG_5579IMG_5583IMG_5586

Family Faith and Heritage Fair

As we have completed our Family Faith and Heritage project now, I am reminded of the words from Psalm 78:4-6:

“We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.”

Over the last weeks in our discussion of our faith journeys and our heritage, the children have shared stories of their families. I am reminded of the awesome privilege we have as parents, grandparents, godparents, and teachers to share the love of Jesus with these precious children.

I am so proud of the 4th graders! They did an incredible job on their displays and their presentations. Thank you for making this a memorable project for the kids.

The 4th graders finished the chapter about plants this week. They were grouped together with classmates and looked at the four main parts of a lily. On to the next chapter about animals!

See You at the Pole-September, 2014

Ephesians 6:18 tells us to never stop praying. That was the 2014 theme of See You at the Pole. The verse follows Paul’s passage on the armor of God, challenging and encouraging followers of Christ to stand strong in the Lord and be His representatives to share the Good News of the Gospel.  We had a wonderful group of students and parents who prayed with us today. The power of prayer is great.

Chapel Families

This morning the students in grades K-8 were divided into chapel families. Throughout the year we will be seeing each other in the hallways and other events, sitting together in chapel, and getting to know each other. We were reminded in chapel that we are part of many families-our families at home, chapel families, our church family, and the family of believers across the world. We praise God that we were adopted into His family! We continue to strengthen our faith in Him through His Word and devotions and prayer time. IMG_3989 IMG_3991 IMG_3993

Hands-On Math!

 

Today we made a large number line in the classroom featuring positive and negative numbers. The kids enjoyed adding the tick marks and numbering them. They were able to “see” when comparing numbers as their classmates “became” the numbers.
