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.
