God’s Word is for Life Transformation

^ translation day

Earlier this school year I had the privilege of attending a New Testament Bible dedication. It’s really exciting to see both the smiles and tears of joy for those receiving God’s Word in their heart language.

This video was published a year ago by Wycliffe. Watch to learn how the Bible transforms people’s lives when it’s written in a language they can clearly understand, and discover how many language groups are still waiting for their own translation.

Spirit Week- Face, Hair, & Hat Day

Friday was Face, Hair, and Hat Day. This means you can be creative and silly with those three areas.

My friend and I decided to use some make-up we had received for free and look silly together. I had also purchased a hair clip with some neon-colored fake hair attached.

(One of my students who’s now in high school walked in the classroom and at first thought that I had died my hair.)

During the week the students were bringing in money that was donated to help Filipinos who lost their homes in a fire in April. The kids placed the money in six jars (each with a different student’s name). The top three students received a pie in the face (by the three students who didn’t have as much money in their jars.) Our K-8 kids raised 11,000 pesos!

The game at lunch was a scooter race. Each team had to push 10 kids on the scooter down the court, around a square, and back. The elementary were supposed to start on the scooter and be pushed by middle school students. I enjoyed snapping some hilarious facial expressions.

Spirit Week- Blast from the Past Day

Last Wednesday was Blast from the Past Day. I decided to dress up like an Ancient Greek or Roman. Using a bed sheet to make a toga is surprisingly difficult. 🙂

Ruth, my housemate, dressed up like a hippie. She looked great!

At lunch each team had to find a peso (coin) hidden beneath a bunch of flour on a plate. They could only remove flour by blowing on it. The kids’ faces look great afterward.

I saw these socks when I was shopping and knew they would be perfect.

Our lunch game was longest line. First, the kids had to make the longest line by having each team member lie down on the covered court. The team that stretched the furthest won.

Then they used their appropriately removable wardrobe items to make the longest line. This included shoe strings, watches, wallets, cash, lunch boxes, lunch pieces, etc.
