This week we began our unit on Martin Luther and the Reformation! Every morning first graders scoured the classroom to find the hidden “Little Luther”.
The first morning “Little Luther” left us a letter…so exciting!! Little Luther’s letter explained that he was here to teach us about the Reformation and how Martin Luther helped people learn what the Bible said about God’s mercy and grace.
The next day, first graders found Little Luther next to a Bible. They discovered that, over 500 years ago, when Martin Luther read the Bible he was happy to find out that God wasn’t angry at His people but He LOVED all His people.
One day, first graders found Little Luther next to a hammer. They found out that on Oct. 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther wanted people to discuss what the Bible said about salvation and God’s grace. This was the beginning of the Reformation!
First graders can’t wait to continue to learn about and celebrate the Reformation. On Oct. 31 we will perform our Reformation Day Bible parade!!
Last week our 4th Grade Reading Buddies helped us make THANK YOU cards for the Orange County firefighters!
