It’s the last week of November and we are finishing off the month with some turkey fun. In our activity center we are practicing our fine motor skills by picking up feathers with tongues and putting them in a turkey cup. Also, in the activity center the preschoolers are feeding the turkey with the matching letter cards and using dabbers on the letter G and counting the turkeys to the right number on the turkeys.
In our writing center we are practicing writing the letter Gg on the chalkboard and on a white board.
Our outside activity we had an obstacle course where we practiced our crawling and jumping.
On Wednesday we had our STEM activity where we had baking soda on a tray and had colored vinegar in an eye dropper. It was fun to see their reaction.
Art this week we are going to make a turkey tail by color on a coffee filter and get it wet with an eye dropper and watch the ink bleed together.
Bible lesson this week is Bread from Heaven and our bible verse is "I will be with you" Exodus 3:12.
K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand
Our Bible lessons last week and this week took us with the Israelites through the dessert. We learned how God provided manna in the morning and quail at night to provide for the Israelites daily needs. We also learned how God gave them the 10 commandments. Finally, this week God leads them into the Promised land and gave them the city of Jericho in a very unique way. His power can overcome any wall, city, or trouble we may have. We can ask God to provide for our daily needs, and trust that he will lovingly get us through our own journey of life. We tell and show him thanks by loving Him and others all around us. 1 Corinthians 10:31 "whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God" is our memory treasure this week.
Kindergarten: in Reading, we will finish fixing toys with Doc, but not without reading some real words and learning that double letters make one sound. We will be taking a unit test, and then meeting another new Superkid this week. In Math we are measuring Height (up and down), length (side to side) and weight. We got to use our rulers too! For Writing, we're adding a new rhyme to our sentences. We've been labeling thanksgiving pictures, and will start working on a Christmas sight words book that we get to illustrate and write.
First grade: We've started a new unit in Reading, so we have a test to take. Spelling unit 3.1 -ng test is NEXT Wednesday, not today. We're looking at the -ng and -ing sound at the ends of words. In Math, we're reviewing adding and switching to subtracting. This will have us learning fact families before week's end.
In Social Studies, we are learning about the places we live, what each place is called, and how we can find them on the map. For Science we continue look at living and non-living things. In Art, we are going to make some Christmas cards to mail to our classroom friends we've met through our alphabet letter mailings.
Did you hear how awesome the Turkey Trot was? Now during P.E. we are teaming up to complete our exercises and keep us moving and warm. Gotta look for your number and keep your teammate close.
2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach
This week in Word of God, we are learning about some of the Old Testament laws, including the building of the tabernacle and rules about worship/sacrifices. We are learning that these sacrifices and rules served as a reminder that sacrifice is necessary to make everything right between a holy God and sinful human beings. Thank God that Jesus' ultimate sacrifice covers all sins of all time.
In math, 2nd graders have begun learning about coins, money, and how they relate to number values! 3rd and 4th grades are continuing to learn division strategies.
In Language Arts, 2nd grade is learning chants to help them differentiate between oi/oy words, and ou/ow sounds. 3/4 are learning about Direct Objects and Subject-Verb Agreement. We will read a picture book and study the literary element, plot.
In Science, we are learning about energy in the form of sound, and how vibrations create sounds!
Since we are getting into colder weather, we are doing a unit in P.E. that focuses on indoor exercise. In Music, the students will compose their own short song. Later this week, we will begin a Christmas art project that will practice using color to create tints and shades.
