Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room

This week our Jesus story was “5 Loaves of Bread and 2 Fish”. Jesus used his almighty power to feed more than 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. God does not just care about our spiritual needs; he also cares about our physical needs.

“God will meet all your needs” is the memory treasure for this week.

In Social Studies we are learning about Johnny Appleseed.

For Art we are doing symmetry and hearts.

In Movement we are squishing and squeezing and contorting to hide in a rousing game of hide and seek. Keeping warm inside is a little easier if you’re huddled into a nice cozy hiding place.

Preschool: Our number this week is 14. “Long line down, down and over, one more down, number 14…WOW!” Our letter is Kk as in King and kite and kick.

Kindergarten: For Math we took our Ch.6 test. We are now moving on to breaking apart and investigating the teen numbers. In Reading we will be finishing up our Tic, Tac, Toc games. We are also playing sight word games and rhyming games. Please read sight words with your children every night at home. They should be able to memorize the groups in each bag that comes home. Group 4 will be coming home at the end of the week.

Mrs. Utsch’s Room

In 1st grade Math we compared 2-digit numbers and determined which was greater or less, and used symbols of great than, less than, or equal to to compare 2-digit numbers. In Reading we are reading and spelling contractions with n’t and read the story “The Spingle Spangle Talent Show”.

In Math we solved multi step addition and subtraction problems, represented 3-digit addition using drawing and decomposing numbers, and recorded 3-digit addition using standard algorithm with regrouping of tens and ones. In 2nd grade Reading we read words with final ll, ff, and ss spelling patterns, we identified nouns and verbs, and distinguished between complete and incomplete sentences.

In 3rd grade Math we solved problems that required us to find the start and end times, described equal parts of a whole, and represented and named unit fractions. In Reading we are reading “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.

In Religion we learned about “Moses’ Sin and the Bronze Snake”. God sometimes uses punishment to show us our sin, but he also gives us forgiveness of sins and eternal life through Jesus. We also learned about how “Balaam Blessed the Israelites”. God deserves all glory, we can give glory to God in our thoughts, words, and actions.

MAP testing is starting next week.

Mr. Gephart’s Room

Hi Parents, Family, and Friends,

Here is a look into the classroom this week.

In Reading the 4th-5th graders are reading “How to Eat Fried Worms”. Can Billy eat 15 worms in 15 days? What is he going to do with $50? The 6th-8th graders are reading “Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie”. We’ll see the ups and downs of a middle school boy whose little brother is going through cancer.

In Grammar the students are learning about adverbs and pronouns.

In Math the 4th graders are learning how to long divide. 5th graders about fractions. 6th graders are learning the basics of geometry. The 7th graders about different kinds of graphs and how to interpret lots of data. 8th graders are learning how to multiply and factor polynomials.

In Geography we are learning more about Africa.

In History the upper graders are learning about WWII. The lower graders are learning about MN history. They are learning about WWI.

In Writing we are working on our research paper.

Starting Tuesday, January 18th, Mr. Gephart will have a 6-week student teacher from MLC, Ms. Hannah Wendland. He will also get a clinical student, Mr. Washburn every Thursday.
