PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard

This week is all about brushing teeth and washing hands. All week we practiced writing our name on our teeth, matching letters on teeth then brushing them clean with a toothbrush and counting the monster's teeth. 

On Wednesday we had a 3-step art project. Traced our hand on paper then put watered down paint on the traced hand with eye drops and then blew the paint with a straw to represent how germs spread on hands. On Friday we will be ripping paper into little pieces to fill in a heart and we will be practicing writing crazy lines.

On Thursday my friend Alishia (dental hygienist) is coming to our room to talk to us on how to brush your teeth and how to keep your teeth healthy. 

Our focus this week was the letter Nn and hearts. We built the number with popsicle sticks and pom poms. We also practiced writing the letter with the fancy markers. 

Our bible story is Jesus feeds 5000 people.  We glued on 5 pieces of bread and 2 fish for our bible activity this week. Memory treasure is Trust in the Lord with all your heart proverbs 3:5.


K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand

This week we've got 2 Bible lessons.  First, we heard about Jesus' miracle of a great catch of fish.  We met Peter, James, and John.  We learned that we too can be fishermen, but we're catching people using God's word, so that they can believe.   We also heard how Jesus calmed a great storm using his power through his word.  In times of trouble, we should call upon Jesus. Roman's 10:17 “Faith comes from hearing the message and the message comes from the Word of Christ”.  

During Reading, 1st grade is still working on VC double the letter, CC just add ending.  We'll be doing descriptive writing too.  There will NOT be a spelling list for the next week.  Kindergarten is working on Ff with Fritz and will take a Unit test.   We are also learning about speech bubbles and question marks.  

In Math, 1st grade is comparing numbers. We're finding how many fewer and more.  Kindergarten finished time and are moving on to Number Bonds (adding.)  

In Science, we are learning the parts of the plant, and what they do.  In Social Studies, we played a search game to finish our community unit.  For Phy Ed, we're going to work on our hands eye coordination with basketball dribble and pass.  

 

2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach
