PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard

Happy Valentine’s Day! The preschoolers had a party today, making valentine bags, valentine posters with dobbers and making patterns with candy hearts.

This week we have been focusing on the letter Vv and the color red. We practice writing V and heart on a chalkboard and erasing it with our finger. 

On Monday we cut out a heart to spell our name.

On Thursday we are going to rip tissue paper and glue it on a heart.

Our bible story is Jesus walks on water. On Tuesday we watercolor a coloring sheet of Jesus walking on water.


K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand

This week our 2 Bible stories are "Jesus heals a Paralyzed man" and "Jairus' Daughter".  In both lessons we learn about Jesus' power. First to forgive us and heal our hearts, then to heal our bodies.  He made a paralyzed man in Capernaum walk, and he brought Jairus' daughter back to life after she died.  Only God has power to raise us back to life to live with him in Heaven.  Whenever we have troubles, we know that we can turn to God in prayer and he will take care of our troubles.  "Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you" 1 Peter 5:7.   

            In Math, Kindergarten is breaking apart the numbers 1-5 and creating all the number bonds they can for each number.  1st grade is still comparing numbers, and has added bar models to compare with.  

            In Reading, Kindergarten met Ettabetta, who loves game books.  They will focus on the short /e/ sound of Ee.   1st grade took a Unit 5 test, and will begin investigating the long vowel sounds with unit 6.  There WILL be a spelling test next Wednesday, even with the day off since they should know all or most of the words on their new list 6.1 long o, e, and u pattern words.  

            In Social studies we started a new unit that will focus on our country.  We will begin with the pilgrims and early settlers.  In Science the plant kingdom continues to be explored.  

            We are still working toward our 7-day goals for working quietly and being a good friend.  If we can get 3 more days of quiet working and kindness then there is ice cream to enjoy.  Encourage your children to keep working on these goals.

 

2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach

This week in Word of God the 2-4 class is learning about the Judges. The first judge we are learning about is Gideon.

In Math, 2nd graders are learning addition strategies. 3rd grade is learning perimeter and area. 4th grade is learning about factors and multiples.

In Social Studies we are beginning to explore the first colonies in America.

In Language Arts, 3-4 continue reading "Dear Mr. Henshaw". They designed a burglar alarm because in the book, the main character is going to design a burglar alarm to put on his lunchbox because people keep stealing his lunch at school. 2nd graders are learning about adjectives and adverbs.

We had a Valentine's Day party where we passed out valentines and did an activity. They each had a heart with their name on it. They passed them around to each student so they could write what they like about each classmate on their heart.

 

5-8th: Mr. Holz
