wTrain up a child in the way he should go; and even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Kindergarten News from Mrs. Henderson

In Jesus’ Time we learn about Pentecost when the tongues of fire rested on Jesus’ disciples. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and could speak different languages. God wants all people to hear about Jesus and to come to faith in Him as their Savior. The Holy Spirit makes us brave and glad to share the news of what Jesus has done. In Reading, our next unit is called Sorted Out and the big book is called All Kinds of Families. We will work on the Long u sound in Spelling.   Show and Tell on April 27 will be Paycen, Lilah and Allen’s turn to bring a game to share and for May 4 (not May 3 as the list says) it will be Will, Reid, Layla, and Bennett’s turn. On May 3, it will be our Field Trip to the Scott County Fairgrounds for our U of I Extension’s program. In Math, we will be learning to add 0 to a number. In Science, we begin our plant unit and will be planting marigolds, sunflowers and beans. Our Scholastic News will focus on Earth Day and watching carrots grow. Thank you to all the families that brought in animals for Pet Week.  We had a great time seeing all the different breeds of dogs and enjoyed petting them. We also had a treat of petting a kid-goat and a Flemish Giant rabbit. We had very well-behaved animals and no accidents I’m surprised and happy to say. Thank you to the parents that drove and chaperoned our field trip to Springfield last week: Sara Schumacher, Melissa Orr, Dustin Prather, Sherry Eckert and Sarah Briggs. We had some get sick at the last minute so we missed a student and several grandparents and a parent.  We are looking forward to the play and wearing the awesome costumes that Mrs. Orr and friends created and assembled.  Thanks for parents that volunteered and helped get us ready!! And thank you Mrs. Orr for sharing your gift of music, directing and sewing with us.


Kindergarten News from Mrs. Henderson

In Jesus’ Time, we will hear about Jesus ascending into heaven but that before He left He gave His disciples a job to do which was to tell everyone about Him. Jesus also wants us to tell people about His great love for them. He promises to stay with us always and to take us to heaven to live with Him forever.  The “Book It” reading program for pizzas is over for the year but students may continue to read and turn in sheets of books read. For reading 10 books they may earn free “Cookie Dough” from Papa Murphy’s, so keep sending in lists with names of 10 books to receive this freebie. I will accept lists until the end of the school year. In reading, we begin a unit called Problem Solvers based on the Big Book called What’s the Big Idea Molly?   In math, we keep practicing our math fact doubles and adding one to numbers.  The Show and Tell theme for April 19 (Thursday not Friday) is a Mystery Bag with an item that can be recycled and for April 27, Paycen, Lilah and Allen may bring a game to share with the class. Reminder that your child needs a sack lunch, drink and jacket for the field trip on Friday, April 20. The K-8th Grade musical is Friday, April 27 at 7 p.m.  and Saturday, April 28 at 1 p.m. Please have your child come to our classroom (after using the restroom) no later than 6:30 p.m. Friday and 12:15 on Sat (to eat lunch) so I can get them into costume for the play. You may pick them up from the classroom after the evening performance. Thanks for attending. Next week on April 27, at about 2 p.m.  the Pilot group is bringing a group to visit us with their Brainminder’s Group. The animals in costume will teach us to protect our melons by wearing helmets etc. Visitors are welcome.  I’m trying to get to watch each child in my class play soccer, T-ball or dance so please let me know when the games and recitals are held. Be sure you tell your friends about Salem Lutheran School, we would love to have them here as part of the Salem family.
