This week we continue Jesus’ journey to the cross. “Jesus Prays in the Garden” is our story. We learned to pray like Jesus, often and for God’s will to be done. “Your will be done” is our memory treasure.
In Science we talked about how the Earth’s rotation is what causes day and night. When it’s day on one side it’s night on the other.
In Social Studies we will be falling down Niagara Falls in New York and Canada.
For Art we made our very own collage with cut paper.
Preschool: We are writing our last letter Zz for Zebra, Zipper, Zoo, and Zero. Our numbers are on review and we are working on building number flowers.
Kindergarten: For Math we have begun learning all the coins and their worth. In Reading we are still cleaning up the bus for the superkids club.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes!
Mrs. Utsch’s Room
In 1st grade Math we identified equal or unequal shares and divided shapes in halves and fourths. In Reading we read words with the ar and or pattern, identified antonyms, and read the story “Rex King Visits”.
In 2nd grade Math we added and subtracted lengths in centimeters and measured and compared lengths in centimeters. In Reading we read pattern words that are compound words, used singular and plural pronouns in sentences, and distinguished between fact and opinion.
In 3rd grade Math we used and made line plots to display data. In Reading we are reading “Shiloh” by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor.
In Religion we learned about how God had chosen Saul to become king over the Israelites. At first Saul was a humble king and served others and God, but Saul disobeyed God and was not sorry for his sins. God wants us to humbly serve others and him, and God hates sin and wants us to repent of our sins and obey him.
Mr. Gephart’s Room
Hi Parents, Family, and Friends,

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 are learning about rates and ratios. The 6th graders are learning how to find the area of different shapes. The 7th graders about volume. And the 8th graders are learning about rational expressions.
In Geography we are learning more about southeast Asia.
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 Civil Rights Movement.
In Writing we are writing a demonstration paragraph focusing on sequence and order.

Student Teacher: 4th-8th Room
Hello! I’m Lynnea Starzl. Originally, I am from Yankton, South Dakota, a small town right next to Nebraska’s border. However, my family and I have moved to several places around the Midwest. Currently, I am studying at Martin Luther College to be an elementary school teacher with a minor in social studies. This semester will be my last before graduation, and moving to Mequon, Wisconsin, where my Fiancé will study to be a pastor. Thank you, Immanuel school and parents for allowing me to work with the fourth through eighth grade class these coming weeks.
