Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room
This week our Jesus story is “Jesus Died for Me”. We remembered the story of Jesus dying on the cross because He loves us more than anything. His dying on the cross paid for all of our sins. “Forgive us our sins” is our memory treasure.
For our Science and Social Studies this week we are focusing on the Titanic, obviously 😊 We have learned what icebergs are and their sizes, metal eating bacteria, visited Belfast, enjoyed the first-class view, and even made our own first-class view while learning that lifeboats can only hold so many people.
In Art we became our own ship designer and had fun using oil pastels to design our ships.
Preschool: Our full alphabet review has begun, and we are using our fine motor skills to decorate and make our letters. This week we decorated T, I, A, and C. We are reviewing all our numbers as well and will enjoy activities and games to reinforce and memorize them.
Kindergarten: During Math we are finishing up coins and their values, as well as trading them out for each other. We will test on Friday. In Reading we focused on Rr and decorating the new superkids club bus as a rainbow. We also reviewed our primary colors. We will test on Thursday.
Thank you all for meeting with me this week in conferences. I’m always excited to check in and continue to focus on keeping every child learning.

In 1st grade Math we used nonstandard units to measure and compare lengths of objects. In Reading we read words with the ar and or patterns, decoded words with the er, ir, and ur spelling pattern, and read the story “Fire”.
In 2nd grade Math we identified and drew three-dimensional and two-dimensional shapes. In Reading we read pattern words that have the long a spelling pattern spelled ai, ay, ey, eigh, ange, and -able, used capitalization rules in a title, and used comparative and superlative adjectives.
In 3rd grade Math we described shapes, described angles and sides in shapes, and defined quadrilaterals. In Reading we are reading “Shiloh” by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.
In Religion we learned that God gave David faith and helped him kill Goliath. God has given us a strong faith and gives us help in times of trouble. Jonathan, King Saul’s son, protected David when his father tried to kill him. Christian friends are blessings from God and we want to act as true Christian friends.
