Kindergarten

Kindergarten at Our Savior Lutheran School is a daily routine in a Christian setting where each child is loved, respected and accepted, and in turn, each child learns to love, respect, and accept those around him/her.

The teaching/learning in the classroom is child oriented with a combination teacher led, teacher facilitated atmosphere. Centers are part of the curriculum. An academic, developmental balance is the goal for our kindergarten.

Through many rich and varied experiences the OSLS kindergarten curriculum promotes growth for the social, emotional, creative, spiritual, and intellectual development of each child.

 

Classroom Letter     May 17

Dear Parents,

Our Bible story this week was the story of Jesus ascending into Heaven.  Jesus 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. —- Our letter this week was the letter Xx.  New sight words are:  red, yellow, blue.  —- In math we’re learning about money (coins). —- We made greenhouses in baggies to watch our pumpkin seeds germinate. —- Ask about Thursday’s Fun Run! —- We’ve been practicing for the track meet.

Our Track Meet is Friday (5/24). The kindergarten events (dash, sack race, ball throw, and shoe kick) should be finished before noon.  You can take your kindergartner home after the events, or stay and watch!  It will be held at the track at Calvin College.  See the EFN for details!

Show & Tell for Thursday – free choice.

In Christ,

Chris Mc.

 

Classroom Letter     May 10

Dear Parents,

Our Bible story this week is “Thomas Sees Jesus”.  Through faith, we see Jesus in God’s Word and believe that He is the living God. —- Our letter this week was the letter Ee.  We’re listening for /e/ in the middle of words.  Students did a great job reading Sick in Bed?.  Have your kindergartner read it to you! —- We are learning songs for the musical. —- Did you hear about our ants?  Stop in and see them sometime! —- Be sure to ask about Grandparents Day!

Our K-4 musical, “Go West!”,  is on Friday, May 31, at 7:00.  We’re asking the kindergarten students to dress as cowpokes.  (Cowpokes can wear shorts if it’s hot.)  No horses or weapons, please.

Remember- The Fun Run is on Thursday afternoon!

In Christ,

Chris Mc.
