3rd Grade Overview

December 11-15

Bible: Continue working on scripture memory for the these verses:  Psalm 1:1-3 (ESV).   Our next verse test #6 will be on Friday, December 15, 2017, and will cover the following verse.

Psalm 1:3 (ESV)

3 “He is like a tree planted by streams of water

that yields its fruit in its season,

and its leaf does not wither.

In all that he does, he prospers.”

***  Students should be prepared for some kind of review quiz (verbal or word bank ) of verses 1 and 2 so that we can keep the entire passage fresh on our mind.  

Psalm 1:1-2 (ESV)

1 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,

nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;

2 but His delight is in the law of the LORD,

and on His law he meditates day and night.”
