Proverbs 22:6
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

During Jesus’ Time we hear about Jesus’ first miracle when Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding in Cana. Mrs. Henderson played a trick on us by turning water into wine but only Jesus could really do that.  Jesus is powerful and compassionate enough to care for our every need.  We should remember to always give our concerns to God first. In math, we are recognizing doubles and identifying matching sets by playing dominoes and doing basic addition. In reading we are beginning our new unit called The Four Seasons featuring the Big Book, Mama, Is It Summer Yet?  Remember to keep writing down your books read for Book It and now for the Six Flags free ticket also.  We are very excited for our 100 Day celebration which is on Monday Jan. 29 (if no more snow days).  All our activities will focus on 100 Day, including listing 100 blessings, measuring 100 items and reading many 100 Day books, including Mrs. Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of School and more. Please remember to bring your child’s poster showing 100 items (as soon as they have completed them) to hang in the hall. In addition to the poster (with the 100 glued items) bring a group of 100 like items in a baggie) to use in measuring activities. I hope you have received the packet concerning the Writing Talent Search that our school is sponsoring. I’m encouraging your child to write a story or create a poem for an entry, dictated to the parents to type. Rules are included; please ask if you have questions. A bonus of 25 Flashbucks will be given to all students that enter (which can be cashed in at the Henderson Mart to buy actual items they may keep). Entries for the Writing Talent Search are due no later than Feb.1 (earlier is better). Show and Tell theme for Friday, Jan. 19 is to bring an object that reminds you of winter. In our Scholastic Magazine, we discuss why Penguins can’t fly. No Spelling test on Jan. 19 (reviewing instead) and the test on Jan. 26 will focus on “k” and “ck” words. In Social Studies we are studying river and landforms.
