PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard
We had a fun week learning all about pumpkins. We measured pumpkins with blocks and traced them to see how big they were. We had a pumpkin race outside, painted pumpkins, and cut them open to find all the seeds. Our favorite this week was properly hammering the golf tees in the pumpkin and making a pattern with candy corn.
We earned enough stars in our star jar to make slime. It was messy but we did love it. Our next reward for earning stars will be a pajama day. I will let everyone know when that day will be when it gets closer. This week we are practicing writing our name and learning more about the different sounds letters make. We have also been practicing our songs that we will perform for you on Sunday November 12th at 3pm, at church.
We have a new memory treasure song we have been learning for a week I will provide for you, Genesis 45:11. Our bible story is Baby Moses.
K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand
This week our Bible lesson focuses on Moses. We learned that his mom trusted God's plan for her baby as she put him in a basket in a river. He was found by the princess, and still raised by his real mom. His mom was able to teach him about God before he moved to the palace with the princess. 1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you" Is our memory verse this week.
Kindergarten: For Math we are learning about shapes and not shapes, as well as flat vs solid/3D shapes. In Reading we will be finishing with Alf and Meeting a new superkid. Who could it be and what do we get to explore next?
First grade: Math has us learning more addition rules. During reading we are working with diagraphs and understanding what we're reading.
In Science, we started to explore animals and plants.
Social studies are helping us learn ways the government can help us through people and services.
We made a Luther's seal to celebrate the reformation on Tuesday.
We also enjoyed the snow that came. It's like a whole new playground. Thank you for sending boots and snow gear, it really helps the kids have an active recess. 😊
2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach
This week in Word of God, we see how God continues to show his almighty power by saving the Israelites from Egyptian oppression. We studied the 10 plagues and the crossing of the Red Sea.
In math, 2nd graders are creating and playing a matching memory game to review recent concepts.
3rd grade has worked through strategies to use when multiplying by each number 1-10! They continue to study flashcards to become fluent. 4th grade is working on the theory behind multiplication, being able to draw pictures to show what the multiplication means.
2nd grade is finishing up their first chapter book in their reading groups. They will do a project with their group to show their comprehension of the book. 3-4 have started a Grammar unit. We will do grammar Monday-Thursday now, and we will set aside Fridays for teaching literary elements with picture books.
In Science, we are studying the states of matter, creating a states of matter model, and we will observe the changing of states by making hot chocolate in my instant pot later this week!
We have been spending a lot of time learning the songs and lines for the musical, "Go Fish!". We have the stage and costumes now!
