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.

Show & Tell for Thursday – free choice.

Our Bible story this week was The Widow’s Mite.  We learned that we should willingly give our time, talents, and treasure to Jesus, trusting that He gives us all we need. —- Our letter for most of this week was the letter Ll.  New sight words are:  see, look, God, Jesus. —- In science we’re learning about weather. —- On Thursday, Mrs. Lawrence from WMLHS visited with some fun with inclined planes.

Report cards came home today.  Check the EFN for the conference schedule for Thursday evening and Friday, March 14th and 15th.  (There is no school on Friday.)
