3rd Grade Overview

February 20-23

Bible: Continue working on scripture memory for the these verses:  Psalm 1:1-6 (ESV).  Our next verse test #9 has not been scheduled yet, but will cover the following verse:  Psalm 1:6(ESV).

Psalm 1:6 (ESV)

6 “for the LORD knows the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked will perish.”

***  Students should be prepared for some kind of review quiz (verbal or word bank) of verses 1 through 5 so that we can keep the entire passage fresh on our mind.

Psalm 1:1-5

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.

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.

4 The wicked are not so,

but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;”
