“Redouté Still Life”

Thank you: Mrs. Jessup’s 1st Grade Class

Value: Floral Keepsake

French artists Matisse and Redouté shared a love of color and a rich respect for the tradition of still-life painting. One gave us lush compositions packed with florals and another dense patterns and flattened perspectives. Ms. Jessup’s 1st grade class imagined what might happen if these two artists created work together. Students constructed hand-painted paper flowers in a Matisse-like style, then arranged in a Redouté-like fashion, resulting in a contemporary take on a timeless tradition.

Pray the Rosary with Mrs. Jessup: 2nd Decade of the Joyful Mystery

The Second Joyful Mystery: The Visitation

What word do you hear in the word “visitation?” (visit) This mystery is about Mary’s visit with her cousin St. Elizabeth.

After the Angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus, he told her that her cousin Elizabeth was going to have a baby as well! Mary was very excited to hear this and she left right away to go see her.

When Mary was close to Elizabeth’s house, her cousin ran out to see her. She was so happy! She hugged Mary and said, “How is it that the Mother of God’s Son has come to see me? As soon as I saw you, the baby inside of my belly jumped for joy! He knows that Jesus is inside of you!.” Mary said, “My heart praises God! He has done wonderful things.”

Why was St. Elizabeth so excited to see Mary?
What are some wonderful things God has done for you? (what are you thankful for?)

Today when we pray, think about how joyful Mary and St. Elizabeth were to see each other. You can also think about the wonderful things God has done for you. Pray for our health care workers, supermarket employees, truck drivers, firefighters, and police officers.

Prayer time:  Find a quiet place, turn off lights, and play the song “How Great is our God/How Great Thou Art/Our God”

March 27, 2020 (Day #126)

Remember these times are a suggestion, not a requirement. The goal is 1-2 hours of work.

Essential Standards for today

9:00-9:30 Daily 5 Read to Someone or CATCH UP time from the week

This is a fun time to “Face time” a classmate or family member and read together.  You can choose from the following ways to read to someone:

  1. Check for understanding.  You share one book and take turns reading it.  One reads a page or two and when he is finished the other person “checks for understanding”.  This means you retell what happened in the story (who, what, where).  Then the other person reads a page or two…
  2. Fluency Practice: If you have older brothers or sisters, this might be the choice for you.  One reads a page out loud showing good fluency (taking breaks for periods, commas, using voice).  The other then reads the same page.
  3. Read 2 different Books: This is perfect if you are facetiming a friend or family member. You both get out good fit books and take turns reading a page or two of your own book.

 

No reading assignments today!

Jellyfishgowithflow

Make jellyfish!

The reason why I picked this animal is that I can imagine in week 2 you may be having a hard time (listening, following directions) so we will be like jellyfish who go with the flow.  How does this look?  We listen, be respectful (don’t talk back), be safe, be kind, and not bossy. You can earn stickers or stars when you show how you are going with the flow.  I attached a paper version you can color and write/draw how you can go with the flow.

10:30-11:00 Religion

Materials needed:  Rosary if you have it

During Lent it is important to pray to God and find peace in our hearts when everything around us seems scary or confusing.  The rosary is a perfect prayer to think about the joy of God. You are welcome to learn about the rosary by watching Brother Francis on formed.org (free to sign up).  Find his episode called “The Rosary”.  Then see video below.  If you don’t have a rosary you can use your 10 fingers. 🙂  I will be leading the first joyful mystery (one decade).

The First Joyful Mystery: The Annunciation

The word annunciation sounds like the word “announcement.” This story is going to be about a very joyful or happy announcement.

There once was a girl named Mary. She lived with her parents in a town called Nazareth. She loved God very much, and always did what her parents asked. One day, while Mary was doing some of her work, a bright light shown down upon her! Suddenly an angel appeared! Mary was afraid at first, but the angel said, “Mary, do not be afraid! I am the angel Gabriel, and God has send me to you to give you great news! You have been picked to be the mother of God’s Son. His name will be Jesus.” Mary was confused and asked the angel, “How can this be? I do not understand.” Gabriel told Mary, “God the Holy Spirit will come upon you. It is God’s will, but it is your choice to say yes or no.” Mary said, “Yes! If it is God’s will then I will do it.” When she said this, the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and Jesus was placed inside of her.

Friday:  5 minutes of silence to remember that Jesus loves us so much, he died on the cross for us.

9:00-9:30 Daily 5 Read to Someone

This is a fun chance to “Face time” a classmate or family member and read together.  You can choose from the following ways to read to someone:

1-Check for understanding.  You share one book and take turns reading it.  One reads a page or two and when he is finished the other person “checks for understanding”.  This means you retell what happened in the story (who, what, where).  Then the other person reads a page or two…

2. Fluency Practice: If you have older brothers or sisters, this might be the choice for you.  One reads a page out loud showing good fluency (taking breaks for periods, commas, using voice).  The other then reads the same page.

3. Read 2 different Books: This is perfect if you are face timing a friend or family member. You both get out good fit books and take turns reading a page or two of your own book.

No reading assignments today!
