PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard

This week preschoolers are learning all about our 5 senses.  

Monday - Sound- I had 9 containers that had different objects in them. We shook the containers and tried to guess what was in each one.

We got out the big parachute in the flex room. We made big wind and little wind. They did very well follow 2 step directions during our activity. 

Tuesday- Touch- I got shaving cream out and had them practice writing letters and numbers.

Wednesday-Smell and taste- I have 9 containers with different objects that have different smells. They glued on the pictures of the objects if they liked the smell.  We also got to use smell markers this week.

We will be using all of our senses in our popcorn activity. We get to watch and hear the popcorn pop, smell and taste the popcorn, and touch it before we eat it. 

Thursday-Sight- We will be using magnifying glasses to see things that are really small.  We also will do hot cocoa art. Gluing on cocoa powder and marshmallows.  

Friday- Review- At the writing center we will be gluing the right sense to the objects. At the activity center we will be making shapes with playdough. 

Our bible lesson is Jesus heals a little girl. Our memory verse is “Give thanks to the Lord for he is good.” Psalm 118:1

K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand

Our Bible lessons this week are The Good Samaritan and Jesus heals the 10 lepers.  Through these lessons we learn how to treat others: kind, and with love, just as we would want to be treated.  We also learned to say thank you. God does so much for us, we simply need to remember to tell him thank you!  "Love your neighbor as yourself" Matthew 22:39 is our Memory treasure this week.

During Art we looked at what 2 colors help EVERY color make shade or tint. 


2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach

This week in 2-4 we are learning about Samson, the last judge that God appointed to save the Israelites from their enemies. We noticed that he didn't always do things in a God-pleasing way, but God still uses sinners to accomplish his purpose. 

3rd grade is reviewing clocks, telling time to the minute, differentiating between a.m. and p.m., and calculating elapsed time. 

2nd grade is working on mastering adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers.
