PRESCHOOL: Miss Lokensgard

April is here! For the month of April, I switched our dramatic area to “Flower Shop”. The preschoolers are having fun making flower bouquets and playing in the fairy garden. We are learning that the flowers need lots of water to drink. 

This week we are learning about baby animals and where they live. Our letter we are focusing on is Uu and the number 8

On Tuesday we mixed primary paint colors together to see what colors they turned into. Then we made our own painting using only the 3 colors.  On Wednesday we painted a bunny with white paint and Q-Tip’s. Thursday our bible activity was gluing green tissue paper on a tree then putting Zaccheaus in the tree to see Jesus. 

Our memory treasure is Jesus came to save sinners 1 Timothy 1:15.   


K-1st: Mrs. Eckstrand

This week our Bible lessons are "the Empty Tomb" and Doubting Thomas.   We are first reminded of Jesus' great power over death when He rose from the dead.  Then we met Thomas, who even as a disciple, didn't believe Jesus rose.  We found ourselves in the Bible too, as those who have not seen, yet believe.   Our memory treasures were John 14:19 “Because I live, you also will live”.  And John 20:29 “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe”.   

In Math, 1st grade will finish up place value and numbers to 120 with a test on Tuesday.  Kindergarten will also finish up adding to 10 with a test on Tuesday.  

In Reading, kindergarten is learning the Rr for rainbow. 1st grade continues to work with vowel pairs.  Both classes are writing an opinion paragraph. 

In science, we are learning different animal habitats, and though cloudy we will talk a little about the eclipse. In social studies, we talked a little more about the Gettysburg Address they are reciting. In Art, we made our top hats for the show. 

We earned a movie day through being kind and listening well in the classroom, so we enjoyed "A bugs life" with popcorn this Friday.


2-4th: Mrs. Ungemach

This week in 2-4 we are learning about David and Goliath, and David and Jonathan. Some of the themes we will talk about is how God helps us to face "giants" in our life, and how he provides us with Christian friends who uplift us. 

In math, 3rd grade is working on converting fractions to mixed numbers. 2nd grade is working through multi-step addition and subtraction word problems. 4th grade is studying angles and how to measure them.

In Social Studies, we are studying the background of what led the colonists and Britain to start the Revolutionary War. In the coming weeks, we will be reading about events of the Revolutionary War, then watching episodes of "Liberty Kids" to view the events. They will be journaling and taking quizzes to review and assess their understanding. 

In Language Arts, 3-4th grade is studying conjunctions, interjections, and adjectives in grammar, and will study different kinds of conflict in literature. 

In P.E, we are leading up to playing a full kickball game step-by-step. This week we get closer by playing 2-base kickball, so they can focus on how to get people out, and how to be smart kickers/base runners. 


5-8th: Mr. Holz

Hello Parents, Family and Friends

In Math, 5th Graders are working on how to identify prime numbers and prime factorization. 6th Graders are working on angles and triangles. 7th Graders are working with different types of graphs. 8th Graders are working on negative exponents.

In History, we will be studying American history between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. We are looking at the War of 1812 and how it affected the nation as it was forming. 

In Music we will continue studying types of notes and key signatures. 

In Grammar we are working on clauses and adverbs. 

In Writing we will be working on how to write in first and third person.

In Reading we will be moving into new novels.

In Spelling the students are working through the 23th section of the workbooks.
