Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room
This week our Jesus story is "Jesus makes breakfast". We learned that after Jesus rose, he appeared to his disciples while they were fishing. After catching no fish, they listened to Jesus to cast the nets one more time and caught 153 large fish, without breaking their nets. We too should listen to Jesus' words and blessings will overflow. "Come follow me" is our memory treasure.
In Science we investigated bees. We looked at their hives, their jobs, and why they sting. We also learned about the NOTbee, which is a fly who looks like one.
Preschool: We are reviewing the numbers 4 and 14. We also reviewed the letters a, b, c & d, e, f.
Kindergarten: We are on the hunt with the superkids to find a club house and find a Bb-bus. In Math we will finish introducing money and investigate the calendar and time.
Funny: the preschool girls have determined that recess isn't fun anymore because "we never find dwarfs on our digs", but "if someone could just bring them a BIG shovel it'd be a lot easier."
Mrs. Utsch’s Room
In 1st grade Math we sorted, described, drew, and compared 2-D shapes and made new 2-D shapes. In Reading we read and spelled words with the ar and or spelling pattern and used the suffix -ful in sentences.
In 2nd grade Math we measured the length of objects in inches and feet and measured objects to the nearest yard. In Reading class, we read and spelled words with the long e spelling pattern such as ee, ea, and ie and identified the main idea and details of a story.
In 3rd grade Math we displayed and interpreted data using frequency tables, bar graphs, picture graphs and number line plots. In reading we are reading the novel “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.
In Religion we heard how Jesus’ enemies lied to Pilate and threatened him to get Jesus put to death. God allowed his Son to be sentenced to death as part of his plan of salvation. We also heard how Jesus let himself suffer on a cross to take away the sins of all people. Jesus earned our salvation by suffering and dying for us. We thank and praise God for keeping his promise to save us.
