Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room

This week our Jesus story is "Jesus remember me". We learned that while Jesus was dying on the cross one of the criminals with him asked Jesus to remember him in paradise. Jesus told the criminal "Today he would be with Jesus in Paradise". Jesus chose to stay on the cross and die for the sins of the whole world! He did not take the easy way out. JESUS CHOSE YOU, to live with him in paradise! "Jesus remember me, when you come into your kingdom" is our memory treasure this week.

We are taking to the stage this week and next week, lots of moving and walking, and excitement.

We are fingerprinting for art this week.

In science, we talked about our sense of taste.

This week we will get to learn about Big Ben that we missed last week.

Preschool: It's filling out letter and number review time. We've got new games to learn and play that boost our reading and math skills.

Kindergarten: We've started money in Math. We have found out that we are part of the superkids "Us" because we are super readers!

Mrs. Utsch’s Room

In 1st grade Math we practiced two-digit addition and subtraction. In Reading we read and spelled words with all.

In 2nd grade Math we practiced three-digit addition and subtraction. In Reading class, we read words with w and wh, and wrote words using the prefix mis- and dis-.

In 3rd grade Math we compared fractions with the same numerator and denominator, and different denominator. In Reading we are reading the novel “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.

In Religion we heard how a king punished some guests for rejecting his invitation and one guest for not wearing the special wedding robe. Jesus warned us not to reject God’s gift of heaven by turning away from him as our Savior. Through faith we gladly accept the forgiveness Jesus earned for us so that we can go to heaven. Jesus gave the Lord’s Supper to his disciples to remind them of his suffering and death and to give them forgiveness of sins. Believers who take the Lord’s Supper receive forgiveness of sins.

Mr. Gephart’s Room
