Faith Studies Update from Mrs. Peery

We are having fun studying the New Testament in fourth grade Faith Studies!  The students enjoyed playing Holy Week Trivia and creating Hosanna Prayers as we prepared for Easter.  Students also participated in a Scripture Easter Egg Hunt, in small groups.  Each group found the scripture verses from the Easter story from one of the gospels.   The groups put their story in order and compared their story with the other groups.   As a class we listed the similarities and differences between the stories found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  After Easter we are reading the stories of times when Jesus appeared to his disciples following the resurrection. We are learning that even when we don’t see God, God is present with us.  I have truly enjoyed teaching fourth grade Faith Studies this year.  We are looking forward to a great end of the year together.
