Mrs. Eckstrand’s Room
This week our Jesus story was "Count the Stars". We learned that Abraham wanted a baby, and God promised Abraham as many descendants as the stars. God never breaks His promises and gave Abraham a son, eventually Jesus would be born from Abraham's family. "With God all things are possible" Matthew 19:26 is our memory treasure.
In Science this week we talked about why we have seasons. God really set us up in the perfect spot in the universe as we move around the sun.
In Social Studies we will touch on natural disasters since the children may be hearing a lot about the hurricanes lately. We'll talk about the community helpers that help everywhere.
Movement this week we will grow on our jumping into a mini obstacle course. Controlling our bodies in order to zig zag, jump, and spin.
In Art we will put down the scissors and work with torn paper to make our Jesus picture.
Preschool: The letter for the week is Ss for Sun, Summer, Snowflake (they'll be here soon) and a Seal. Our number is 8 "make an S close the gate, that's the way we make an 8”.
Kindergarten: Math is numbers 1-5, and Reading is with Superkid Oswald for Oo who likes odd animals.
Mrs. Utsch’s Room
In 1st grade Math we represented subtraction by using the strategies counting back, counting on, adding to subtract, and using 10 to subtract. In Reading we identified initial wh, encoded wh words, and recognized and used question marks.
In 2nd Math we collected and recorded data in tally tables and read and solved problems using picture graphs and bar graphs. In Reading class, we read and spelled le and ng words and discussed the difference between a noun and a verb and used them in sentences.
In 3rd grade Math we multiplied by the factors 2, 4, 5, and 10 and practiced strategies to help solve multiplication problems. In Reading we are reading the novel “How to Be Cool in the Third Grade” by Betsy Duffey.
In Religion we learned how Jesus was baptized. Jesus carried out God’s plan for salvation perfectly, God sent Jesus to be our substitute. We learned that Jesus was tempted by the devil and Jesus did not sin. He lived a perfect life as part of his work to save us.
