Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room
This week our Jesus story is “Blessed is the King”, it’s the Palm Sunday story. We learned to be humble like Jesus was and to gladly sing praises to Jesus our King. “Hosanna in the Highest” was our memory treasure.
Our Science this week was Space: Comets, Asteroids, and Meteors.
We’ll check out the California redwood trees while we’re still in California for Social Studies.
For Art we are learning about functional art: art that we can use. We’re making rock bookends.
Preschool: For our number we are reviewing 20. Our letter this week is Yy for Yak, Yo-Yo, and Yellow.
Kindergarten: In Math we will test for our number bonds and we will begin money.
In Reading we are going on an adventure with the superkids to find a clubhouse.
Funny: Giving the letter sheets out for the Preschool to trace and write and one child declares “I don’t like these letters, so I don’t want to do them”. Mrs. Nikki replies “Sorry, just because we don’t like them doesn’t mean we don’t have to learn them”. What would your alphabet look like if you took out the letters you didn’t like?
Mrs. Utsch’s Room
In 1st grade Math we put two-dimensional shapes together to make new shapes. In Reading we read words with the aw and all pattern, sequenced events, and read the story “Play Ball!”.
In 2nd grade Math we measured in centimeters and meters, related inches to a number line, and added and subtracted lengths in inches. In Reading we read pattern words that begin with a w, read and wrote words with the prefix’s mis- and dis-, and identified rhyming words.
In 3rd grade Math we made picture graphs and bar graphs, and used data to read line plots. In Reading we are reading “Shiloh” by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.
In Religion we learned about how God answered Hannah’s prayer by giving her a son who served the Lord. Christian parents pray for their children and teach them to serve God. We also learned why God punished Eli and his sons, because Eli did not stop his sons from continuing in their sin. God expects parents to discipline their children, and he expects children to honor and obey their parents.
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 “Island of the Blue Dolphins”. What is going to happen when the Aleuts from Russia come to the Island? Will they be friend or foe? The 6th-8th graders are reading “The Giver”. What would life be like in a utopian society?
In Grammar the students are learning about capitalization and commas.
In Math the 4th graders are learning how to add and subtract fractions. The 5th graders how to multiply and divide fractions. The 6th graders are learning how to find the area of different shapes. The 7th graders about perimeter and area. And the 8th graders are learning to solve radical equations.
In Geography we are learning more about Africa.
In History the upper graders are learning about the Vietnam War. The lower graders are learning about MN history. They are learning more about the Cold War.
In Writing we are writing a demonstration paragraph focusing on sequence and order.
We also have a student teacher for the next 6 weeks in the classroom. Her name is Lynnea Starzl.
